I do that sometimes. Instead of keeping my focus on the goal, or the mission, I can become fixed on what I just want at that moment in time. When that happens, I ask the wrong questions, such as "how can I make myself happy right now?" and "why am I so confused?"
The right questions focus on the big picture. The right questions focus on goals, visions, and values.
Answering the wrong question will likely slow you down.
Here's are questions that help me --
- What's my goal?
- Does this goal match my values? My vision?
- Is this the best use of my time right now?
- Will this even matter a year from now?
What questions work best for you?
