Questions to Measure Your Life

One of the tools I use on a wilderness quest is to imagine I’m on my deathbed and then I’ll identify a few questions that I would ask myself to measure my life. I choose questions that if answered in the affirmative will bring me the sense of fulfillment and purpose that I seek. Doing this activity far from civilization on the 3rd day of a solo trip definitely makes it a meaningful experience. People rarely have a hard time identifying the things they value most; the trouble of course is in creating a life that serves the things that matter.
