I’m known for asking my children a bunch of questions. It usually happens around the dinner table or car rides. This time I got it in my mind to do it a little differently.
I decided to create a poster to hang in the kitchen with various questions to see how it goes. So far I really like it. What I like most is when I catch glimpses of them talking about them among themselves. If I do it again, I probably won’t cram so many questions on the poster.
- What problem(s) do you want to solve? What do you need to do and learn to make that happen?
- What are some of your best purchases? Why?
- Why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
- Do you remember that time you were really upset? Does it matter now?
- What are 4 things you want to contribute to the world?
- What are the pros and cons of living with your parents post-18?
- Is there a difference between the value of something and the price? Explain and give examples
- What’s one thing you have not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?
- If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make one?
- What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
- What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
- Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
- Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
A song that comes to mind is Common’s The Questions: The Questions
