What Questions Should You Be Asking In 2010?


So far this year I've spent a lot of time asking questions and doing some soul searching.

This is a question I was asked by Kathleen Wood, a Business and Leadership Growth Strategist who is doing some work with our team. It's a question that I think we should be asking ourselves for our business and our careers in 2010.

If you were to reinvent your business or career today based on everything you've learned since you've started, based on all you know at this very moment, what would it look like? What would it be?

Answer that question. Then..

Be that now. Do that now. Ask yourself that question often.

What question's do you think we should you be asking In 2010?

If I should receive a notice of insufficient funds from my bank this year, should I call them and inquire if they meant me or them? :0)

I'm thinking Henry Ford type stuff.
Bringing something new to market that everybody wants and needs, filling voids, if you will. I have to admit though, I don't really look at things on a calendar year basis...more like a month to month married to decade to decade kinda deal.

Hi Amanda,
Great question!

My question falls within the same basic idea. It involves change and a reinvention of where I spent most of my time and energy during 2009, and how I might have better utilized my talents.
In 2010 the question might be asked, "Will I be true to myself?"
How much time and value will I place on living my own dreams and not just fulfilling the dreams of my boss or someone else? Will I have the courage to stand in front of the crowd and be the leader of my life, or will I be content to blindly follow the masses? Will I be the Picasso of my life, masterfully painting my future through the days and weeks of the new year?

That being said, I wish for all the Members of FohBoh a meaningful and prosperous 2010,

Bill

Great questions to ask:

Is my business adding anything of value, or is it just contributing more noise?

Am I still willing to have a learner's mind, or have I become an 'expert' in my field?

Do people work for me, or with me?

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
