101 Essays That Will Change the Way You Think by Brianna Wiest – Notes, Quotes and Highlights (Part 2)

Imagine your life in three years from now. Will you be happy you didn’t try harder in that relationship, or that you didn’t save any money, or that you waster your time watching Netflix when you could have been writing he book or starting the business or playing music like you really want to?

If you can’t figure out what you really want, look straight at your deepest fears. What’s on the other side of them? That’s what you want.

What work are you willing to do even if nobody claps?

“What do I want?” is a question you need to ask yourself every day.

What if we made goals that were more about loving what we have rather than chasing what we don’t?

If I had the life I wanted, what would today look like?

Based on your daily routines, where will you be in five years? Ten? Twenty?

If you didn’t have to work anymore, what would you do with your days?

If you were to walk through your home and put your hand on every single thing you own, how many of them would make you sincerely feel happy or at peace? Why do you keep the rest?

What do you think you’re here for? What’s the point of it all?

Why do you do what you do each day?

In your fantasy, daydreams, who and what are you, and how do other people regard you?

Are you thinking about things other peole did over the years to any significant degree? It’s unlikely.

When’s the last time you leaped out of your comfort zone to tell somebody you care about them?

Stop asking: “What am I doing with my life?” and start asking: “What am I doing with today?”

If you died yesterday, what would you most regret?

If you new nobody would judge you, what would you do with your days?

What’s your favorite line so far?
