The most terrifying question you will ask yourself today


I was going to make this one of those blog posts where I ask you to grab a pen and a piece of paper (“I’ll wait”), ask you to write down a bunch of garbage and then answer a question, but I decided against it. No one ever actually grabs a pen and paper.

Instead of wrapping the question in a ton of text and asking you to reflect, I’m just going to throw it out there. It’s lifted word-for-word from a book that I love that has a cheesy cover but amazing content. The question appears very corny on the surface, and I’ll be honest – it is a little bit corny. But I guarantee that if you take it seriously, you’ll be surprised and impressed by your answer.

Alright, enough rambling.

Jumping ahead to the end of your life, what are the three most important lessons you have learned and why are they so critical?
