Personal questions looking for answers

Let’s build a list

Sometimes the best answers are waiting for that one really good question. provided the original inspiration. I have modified and edited.

Now it’s up to you. Good questions are far more valuable than good answers; good questions lead us up to, and beyond, wonder and wisdom:


  • How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
  • When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
  • If friendship was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
  • Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
  • If the average human life span was 39 years, how would you live your life differently?
  • If you could offer a new parent only one piece of advice, what would it be?
  • Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?
  • Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
  • Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
  • Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
  • If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
  • Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
  • Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
  • When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?
  • If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
  • What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
  • When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?
  • If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
  • Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
