Homework: What do you care about?

This is a follow-up to a guest post I wrote for The Finance Geek: You don’t care about money. I argued that you only care about money because it helps you get what you actually care about.

So what is that?

    What would you do if you were going to die tomorrow?

    What would you do if you were going to live forever?

    What would you do if you knew that you could not fail?

    What would you like to do before you die?

    If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?

    If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?

    If you rubbed a lamp and a genie offered you three wishes, what would you wish for?

    What one thing — object, event, or change — would be worth having, even if you couldn’t get anything else for the rest of your life? What would be worth living on oatmeal in a one-room shack if you could only have that?

Journal about this. Discuss these questions with your BFF. Answer them on your blog. Post your answers in the comments. Don’t stop until you know what you care about.

  • I read a little something similar to your post over at google news… I became interested and then began looking around, and then landed at this site… at any rate, I think that I agree with what you cover here. However I am going to go see what additional information I can look up as well.
