What would need to be true for you to …X?

Note to future self…

Today I came across this question which I find incredibly interesting:

“What would need to be true for you to…X?”

What would need to be true for you to … be happy?

What would need to be true for you to … be at peace?

What would need to be true for you to … retire?

What would need to be true for you to … fall in love again?

The list is virtually infinite and I believe it can help us focus on the things that matter the most to help us achieve our goals. I will keep thinking of this sort of question and try to bring it up more in day to day conversations with people.

Update: have started using it with investors quite a bit

Now back to work…
