“Does it matter?” This week’s question-to-self
I step into this new week with a plan to ask this question-to-self:
“Does it matter?”
at least a few times a day.
I love the idea of using a “YES!” answer to help me move toward my goals and get more satisfaction throughout the week.
I love the idea of using a “No, not really” answer to keep me from barreling down a path that wastes time, won’t help anyone, and won’t give me satisfaction.
Does this question-to-self resonate with you, too?
If you choose to play with it this week, let me know how it goes.
Thanks to Pema Chodron for the inspiration:
“When we start to ask ourselves, “Does it matter?” we realize how many aspects there are to every situation. We begin to appreciate how interconnected we are to the rest of the world, and how even our thought patterns can lead to a whole series of consequences” — Pema Chodron, Welcoming the Unwelcome: Wholehearted Living in a Brokenhearted World
