Big questions are a useful tool to mine insights and utilize the capacities of our minds to analyse big data, solve problems and think better.
Open self-reflective questions or ‘self-coaching’ costs nothing, can be done anywhere and usefully, your mind works on them while you are doing something else.
Here are some big questions for you:
What do I really want?
Who do I want to become?
How do I lose time?
What would make my life/work more fulfilling?
How can I minimise stress?
Where do I waste money?
What does happiness mean to me?
What does success mean to me?
What needs to change?
What is my career strategy?
What am I avoiding that needs resolution?
What fears hold me back?
What goals am I committed to?
What is my role in helping the world?
Self-reflective questions are very powerful, but it is action that creates the change, which is why having a coach is beneficial to achieve more faster; time and space to think, accountability and a supportive yet challenging sounding board.
