I guess this past year could be entitled just like Andrew W.K.’s popular TV show:
DESTROY. BUILD. DESTROY!
This past year was my personal year of destruction. Some destruction happened to me. Some destruction I created.
Now with the New Year it’s time to build again.
Because nearly everything was destroyed around us, it gave JS and I a completely clean slate to choose what tools we want to use to rebuild. Just like Steve Jobs and his wife Laurene had deep discussions about a washer machine, over the past month JS and I have discussed every aspect of our lives.
Big Questions. Little Questions. No stone was left unturned. Perhaps you want to re-evaluate your life as well.
Here are some sample questions.
Ask Yourself Honestly:
- Where should you live?
- Where should you get your mail?
- What do you want to own?
- What do you want to use for hosting?
- What kind of websites do you want to build?
- How do you want to wake up in the morning?
- What do you want to do with your day?
- What do you want to wear?
- What do you want people to know about you?
- What kind of lifestyle do you want to have?
- Where do you want to travel?
- What do we want to do with our lives?
And many, many more questions… You get the idea. Be willing to be bold. Ask yourself anything.
In upcoming posts I will go into brief detail as to what we have chosen in regards to some of these questions, and why.
The intention of these posts is to share our thought process as to how we reached these decisions. What questions did we ask ourselves when considering options? What made the final choice, and why?
Sometimes seeing how someone else does something can be inspirational for something completely different.
