Personal questions looking for answers

| August 11, 2011 | 2 Comments

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?

  1. Bill Sheppard says:

    Excellence is a goal that I strive to exceed a set mark or blaze a new trail. By this I mean I had a administrative position and expanded the position and brought in $10,000,000 in new business. The position did not call for new business or sales contacts. Jesus is perfection and helps us to strive for excellence in our lives.

    What is the difference between excellence and perfection?
