It’s one of the hardest questions to answer. Here are some exercises that might help you to figure it out!
This has been hitting me especially hard since the end of last year, so I related to this on so many levels. Thank you!
I'm a huge fan of the last exercise - there's something about writing about yourself in the format of a Wikipedia article that gives you the necessary detachment to look at yourself a bit more objectively.
And Warren Buffet's triage is brutal, but necessary. I feel like as creatives - speaking for myself here - we so easily get pulled a million different ways as passion after passion appears while we consume the world around us and chase the interesting rabbits down their curious holes.
Interesting. Hi Adam, I do enjoy your writing. I've been busy. How are you? What do I want? I love that reflection: What do I not want? Answers seem to come easily then into my awareness, probably nudged through learning within the confining parameters of my own life experience. Everything is in constant flux, flow and change, we are not separate from all that is. Therefore, we have the capacity to experience fullness of all that is through action. There is no lack. So What do I want? Well for me it's all about connection, sharing my love of the things I like doing. And these things ain't changed much all my life, being outdoors, writing, painting, laughing, sharing. That's enough for me. I do it on a daily basis with the sunrise. My kind of covenant with God.
