Just 3 Quick Questions ‍🤷‍♂️

In Blog, Hustle Podcast by Eric Byrnes

Was reading the Daily Stoic a few weeks back and it was discussing Walker Percy’s famous novel: The Moviegoer… 

In the novel, the “wisest” character was based on Walker’s Uncle Will, who in real life was a Southern Stoic as well as a traveled WWI vet who often hosted some of the world’s biggest influencers… 

Apparently, Will liked to “playfully and honestly” question his guests with broad, open-ended questions that would challenge many people and would dive deep into the inner core of their existence… 

So…. 

Let’s have at it…

1). What do you love? 

2). What do you live by?

3). What do you think is the purpose of life? 

F*CK… Okay, I’ll give it a shot:

Answer # 1 –  I love my family, friends, bulldogs and doing epic shit… 

Answer # 2 – I live by the theory that WE GET OUT WHAT WE PUT IN… There is no shortcut or bullshit life hack that leads to sustained success… 

And oh yea… 

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing, moderation is for pussies… You want to be great? BE OBSESSED. 👊

Answer # 3 – The purpose of life is education and experience… The more we are able to educate ourselves through our experiences, the more knowledge we will be able to obtain and pass on that will positively impact future generations… 

Damn. That’s 3 HEAVY questions right there, but it feels good to dive deep… 

What we love, what we live by, and life’s ultimate purpose are all subjective opinions and really, there are no wrong answers…  Yet, the absolute worst thing we can do in life is robotically get through it without ever really answering these type of questions. 

These are the sort of questions that give life purpose and allows us to look into the depths of our soul, while exploring the meaning to our existence… 

Your turn to answer:
