Good questions

The writer of one my favourite blogs now has a book out: Barking up the Wrong Tree: The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong.


I can’t wait for it to arrive.

In the meantime, one my favourite posts is this one, about 5 good questions to ask yourself:

  • Is this useful?
  • Does the world owe me this?
  • Must I have this to be happy?
  • Is this who I want to be?
  • Have I ever felt that way? (When dealing with a problem person, in order to develop compassion, you really need to start by being open to your own difficulties).

This is me right now. I’m stuck in bed with a post-operative infection. 

What has been helping me is listening to Pema Chodron audiobooks and meditating (using Headspace). 

Oh, and the antibiotics.
