If you aren’t careful, you can end up allocating all of your mental energy toward everyday tasks instead of steering your life toward joy, purpose, and meaning. You can look up months or years from now without being any closer to knowing what you want to accomplish than you are today.
My intention is to ask myself hard questions.
Instead, I want to encourage you to be deliberate about the questions you ask yourself. Commit to spend the next four weeks (at least) reconnecting with the truest parts of yourself.
Start with two simple questions:
Who are you helping with your work?
What what are you learning about your gifts?
I recommend writing out your thoughts if you can. But if not, simply set aside time to think on each question during your commute to and from work.
Pray about them or ask them aloud just before starting your daily meditation.
Hold each question in your spirit as you take a walk outside and see what answers start coming up for you.
This is worth making time for.
