Kelley’s Quought for the Day

“Am I doing what matters right now?”

Kelley’s note accompanying the Quought
I do not believe one can find a complete answer from any single question, any more than one could fill an entire ocean with only one cup of water. I do have a theme of which I think would be a good start, but it would lead to many questions, as all theories do:
Imagine you are at the very end of your life, looking back on your hopes, dreams and accomplishments.  If you could go back, start over, and write the script for your life, what would you dream it to be?
To answer this, you must ask, “What matters most?”
And from there, the real question is;
“What steps must I take, right now, today, in this very moment, to make that dream awaken?”
If you can answer these questions, everything else in life then flows, like a crystal clear river.
For then the only question is, “Am I doing what matters right now?”
