“What do you want?”
For many, this question can be paralyzing. We often don’t know or can’t put it into words.
Try asking a different question.
“How do you want to feel?”
Jot down your answers.
Throughout your day, pay attention to your feelings. What specific activities cause you to feel the way you want to?
Then, schedule enough time every day to do as many of those activities as possible.
This question also works great for us actors when breaking down a script. Instead of asking “What do I want from the other person?”, try asking “How do I want to make them feel?”
This might unlock all kinds of fun, interesting and unpredictable actions we can take.
