the right question

Sometimes when we ask questions of life like,

‘What am I supposed to do with my life?’

‘Where will I end up?’

‘How will I provide for my kids’ education in 10 years time?’

we get stuck in a revolving door, at least I do. The questions are too big, there are too many variables, and while they are worthwhile considering, of course, they can bog us down with too high a levels of uncertainty.

I find that a better question, one that creates direction as well as movement, is to ask,

‘What is the next step?’

The old adage of how to eat an elephant, one bite at a time, is still true.

Get skin in the game, make the next, small, move.
