This morning while walking to the train station by accident three questions came up and suddenly I felt better.
The questions that I do now ask myself while doing something or when about to do something:
- What for?
What is the purpose of my doing? What is the desired outcome? Why do I want or why should I do this?
- What's dropped?
What's cost of the action? What else do I miss in favor of this action?
- Who cares?
Who are the people being affected by my decision? Who are the people interested in my work and doing? Who can gain something from my action or from the desired outcome?
