One of the greatest blog posts I’ve seen comes from Rajesh Setty’s Life Beyond Code. If you haven’t seen his “Quoughts” series (Quought = Question that provokes thought), you must check it out. Rajesh asked several influential thinkers, “What is the ONE important question a person should ask himself or herself in 2007?”
The questions he received are big doozies – the kind that unhinge us from our comfort zones and help us see our lives through a new lens. Here are a few samples:
“How can I be the person that I hope my children become?” (Harry Beckwith)
“What do I have to do to earn and deserve the key relationships that are going to get me where I want to go?” (David Meister)
“How can I help others attain a level of success greater than my own?” (Mike Sansone)
“What is the question whose answer would set me free?” (Peter Block)
“What do I care about enough to defend in conversation with people I respect?” (John Battelle)
“What would I do differently in 2007 if I had no fear?” (Steve Pavlina)
And here are a few quoughts I’d have shared with Rajesh if he’d asked me:
“When am I in the zone, and how will I double the time I spend in the zone in 2007?
“On January 1, 2008, what habit or routine will I wish I had established in 2007?”
“What project can I start working on now that could, conceivably, lead to my next career?” (A good question to ask even if you love your current career.)
Great Quoughts. I might want to use one of them for the series if it is OK with you.
Could you please respond to me via email with your contact details.
Great blog. I will come back to learn more.
Thanks again for your support.
I love that Quought. Great link btw!!!

Hi there! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!
Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
He continually kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this post
to him. Pretty sure he’ll have a good read.
Thanks for sharing!
