I found today’s link thanks to Clay Hebert of fear.less, an online magazine with a spectrum of stories about people overcoming fear. Go read it; there are great things there.

But this post from Michael Hyatt is not so much about fear as it is about perspective: what is the most important question you can ask yourself when life goes off the rails in small ways or large? Is it What did I do wrong? Or Why is everything so unfair/hard?

Me, I think Hyatt’s got the right answer.

One Response to “Possibilities”

    That is a good post. I found another one there that hit the spot for me today too. This one about making a list of reasons why we do stuff. I have those lists in my head and even one or two on my computer, but not in a written, handy, organized fashion for every important area in my life as he suggests. I saw right away the benefit for me of doing it because often when I’m talking myself out of doing something, I can’t bring everything on those lists to mind. I’ve already started doing it, and I found some surprising (just because I hadn’t thought of them) overlaps that are helping me sort out some priorities.

    Good Stuff. Thanks.
