Asking the Hard Questions
I’ve been avoiding the hard questions lately, and I believe it’s holding me back.
What is the one thing I can do such that by doing it makes everything else easier or unnecessary?
How do I provide value to this person?
What is the most important thing I can do with my kids right now?
How do I strengthen my relationship with my wife?
How do I deepen my testimony and understanding of the gospel/my religion?
What is the one thing that I can do to double sales for my company in the next three months?
What can I do to raise the financing I need to make our movie?
How can I achieve more by doing less?
What I realized tonight is that I’ve been living my life in a way that doesn’t get me anywhere. It’s like treading water. Or like this:
In this case, I’d define hustle as asking the right questions (so that you know what direction you’re heading) and then doing the work once you get those answers.
You can’t hustle if you haven’t spent the time to ask the right questions. Hustling without direction is just being busy. It also leaves you wondering why you haven’t progressed toward your goals, why you feel discouraged and depressed, and why even try if it isn’t working?
The first big question I’ve answered tonight, which is “what hard questions should I be asking?”
I’d ask you the same…
