“What do you want to do every day for the rest of your life?”
How could you possibly know this?
“What do you want to do every day for the rest of your life?” This is often used as guiding question to figure out what you should commit to, but I’m not sure how you could possibly know what you want to do every day for the rest of your life.
I think questions like this put a tremendous amount of pressure on us to have it all figured out and know our life path. Even if the question is coming from a pure place and is meant to get you in touch with what you love, I think it’s too big, and can easily be overwhelming, leading us to talk ourselves out of trying things that we may be interested in now but fearful of committing our life to.
You don’t need to know what you’re going to do the rest of your life. You don’t even need to know what you’ll do the next 5 years. All you can do is try a bunch of things out and make the best decision at this point in time about what feels right to younow. Passion for something grows over time. It grows from our interests. And you always have a right to change your passion.
Maybe let your guiding question be: “What do you feel inspired to explore more deeply at this point in your life?”
