I’m freeing my mind by answering “the 50 questions that will free your mind”. It’s number 61 on my list of “101 things to do in 1001 days”. I answered them all on Sunday November 11th, but decided to cut them in five parts.
This is part one.
These questions have no right or wrong answers. Because sometimes asking the right questions is the answer.
1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
I would be 24.
2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?
3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
Because we have the need to be “normal” even though we don’t know what “normal” really is. We do what is expected from us and hope that if we can make everyone else happy, we would be happy as well.
4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
I’m not sure… I say a lot of things and I have many opinions, but when it comes to important things in my life I keep them a secret, so no one can use them against me.
5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
The hatred, selfishness and greediness. (I know it’s three things, but I don’t really care.) Wars are all do to these three things and the world would be happier place if we didn’t hate each other and learned to share. This “me me me”-attitude the world has right now is awful.
6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
Being some sort of inspirational motivator. I think people need inspiration and motivation to be happier these days.
7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
I can’t say that I’m doing what I believe in, but I wouldn’t say I’m settling for what I’m doing either. I do what I’m good at and what I enjoy doing.
8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
I would have gone to different school when I was 16 years old. But otherwise I probably wouldn’t change much. Maybe I would have tried harder to find the perfect man when I was younger.
9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
To the almost highest degree. I’ve had the amazing possibility to make my own decisions and mistakes in my life.
10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
I think I’m more worried about doing things right. I have the tendency to do the right things anyway, so I don’t really worry about them.
