Change Your Questions, Change Your Life
In true Make It Great style, Phil introduced me to Raj Setty just before Christmas. Phil's the best connector I know!
Raj currently serves as the president of Foresight Plus, LLC and is also involved in five other companies (4 in US and 1 in India) in some combination of investor, board member or advisory board member. The companies are iPolipo (meeting scheduling), Suggestica (trusted content on the web), Compassites (outsourced product development) and CIGNEX (open source content management systems) and PSVillage (networking for senior PS Professionals).
Raj is working on a project for 2007 where he will be asking some really significant questions on his blog Life Beyond Code. Here's what he sent me on December 19:
I know you are busy so I will be quick. I maintain a blog called Life Beyond Code where I get about 400,000 page views a month. I have always believed that it is not always the answers but sometimes asking one good question is what is required to make a difference in a person's life or business or both. So as we approach the new year, I am posting a series of questions that people should consider asking themselves in 2007 to get more out of their life or business or both. I am reaching out to several influencers like yourself to get those questions.
So, what is the ONE important question a person should ask himself or herself in 2007?
What a great conversation starter! Since I discovered my genius to be "Inviting Dialogue," this thread is right up my alley!
So, here's my one question for 2007:
What is one burning desire I can articulate for myself and my life in 2007?
That may seem rather obvious, but if you get beyond the pat "stuff" answer (a new car, a new job, more money, etc.) it might not be as easy as you think. I'm a huge fan of The Secret and am currently reading the Napoleon Hill classic "Think And Grow Rich," and I know the answer to that question will be much different for me in 2007 than it's ever been before.
If you'd like some help keeping you on track, consider subscribing to Notes from the Universe (also known as TUT (Totally Unique Thoughts)). When you register there, you'll be able to put in a goal you want to accomplish, and the daily notes remind you to keep it at the top of your mind.
I accomplished what I told TUT last year (a published book) so I changed it this morning. In 2007 I have a burning desire to write for Motto magazine, so that's what I declared (are you listening, Kevin? :) )
So thank you, Raj, for asking me the question question. I look forward to finding out more about you in 2007 as well!
