Good questions guide many a successful life.

In fact, some insanely successful people’s morning journal is a question they ponder then answer. Sort of meditative, yet active journaling. I’ve just talked myself into trying it actually.

Anyway, here’s a common question: “will this matter in a year, 10 years, etc.?”

Great question when you’re freaking out about something. A great question to gain perspective.

But flipping it might be even more powerful.

Ask: “what WILL matter in a year, 10 years, etc.?”

This helps you build better habits.

For me it was:

  • Good health will matter in 10 years.
  • Solid relationships will matter in 10 years.
  • Significant wealth & fulfilling work will matter in 10 years.

Now I can build my habits around what actually matters to me.
