My $.02: Not knowing what you want is a fast way to unhappiness. I have seen so many people going after something without knowing if what they are going after is what they want. Therefore, even when they get what they went after, they are not happy. Debbie’s question is simple, yet profound.

Debbie’s Quought for the Day

“What do I want?”

Debbie’s note accompanying the question:
My question has more to do with a person’s overall life, but can be applied in the career/business sector.  I like this question, because the answer does not remain static.  We can ask ourselves this question every day, or even several times a day, and may get a different answer.

It comes out of my previous career in coaching.  I find that my life does not work as well when I go on automatic and fail to check in with myself with this question.  Without further explanation, here it is:

“What do I want?”  . . .in this situation, job, relationship, holiday etc. etc.  Without beating this to death, we all need to separate out what others want for us, what others expect of us, and have the courage to be still long enough to hear the inner voice speak.
