What do you feel is the most important thing to you in your life?
Why is that?
The significant words in the first question are “you“, feel', and the final two words “your life“.
I recently did a project with seven people, and that first question was the project.
For each individual in the project, there were a myriad of answers.
Not one of the answers was conclusive in the early stages, that is, the first couple of weeks.
Few of us take the time to ask ourselves this question, and then even less time to consider the answer.
There is no one answer.
So many things in life are interdependent that to single out one thing as the most important, can be futile.
That said, look for what you feel is the most important thing to you at this moment anyway. This exercise has the effect of settling priorities.
Decided priorities give meaning and direction to our lives. So, take some time, five, maybe 10, minutes, and scribble down, as fast as you can, as many things as you can, that you feel are important to your life.
Set a clock, an alarm. When your allocated time is up, stop writing.
Then spend some time looking over what you've written, and considering what you flushed out.
Do this exercise for seven consecutive days.
See which element repeats itself and becomes the dominant force.o edit.
