From the School of Life – Three questions towards self-knowledge


An exercise for daily reflection that I’ve been working on.  Pick one of the above questions and write for fifteen minutes.  If it is helpful, make a list of things while considering the following categories:

  • Work
  • Relationships
  • Children / Parents
  • Health
  • Money
  • Things I have to do / want to do / am afraid to do

Now, the next step would be to begin unpacking each item you’ve listed.
For items you are anxious about, try answering:

  1. What steps do you need to take?
  2. What do others need to do?
  3. What needs to happen when?

Getting it on paper makes things a bit more manageable.
