Let me backtrack a bit a give you an overview of what this post is all about. My whole life I’ve been asking myself questions like:
- what is success?
- what makes people successful?
- what is my purpose here?
- how can I go after things I desire and at the same time bring good to others?
- what is the very best thing I can do with my life and my time?
- and so forth.
I realized that questions themselves define the frame. By frame I mean your mindstate, the frame of mind through which you look at the word. Just by asking questions you essentially placing your mind in a box, a “framework” within which you’re attempting to answer them. Most important questions are outside of reason and logic. I’ll type this really fast, in one shot, so bare with me if you find typos :).
