This Mind Bullet, Quest, was inspired by two things: a listener, Micheal K., who wrote in suggesting an episode about questions, and Chevy Chase's iconic Clark Griswold character from the Vacation movies.
A little background: Emotionally keyed up and on the edge of sanity after a series of mishaps on his family's way to Wally World, Clark announces that the family trip is no longer a vacation—it's a quest for fun. He goes on to announce that they'll have so much fun they'll need plastic surgery to remove their grins, among other things. (Warning: Clip is played in unedited form, complete with F words.)
Quest is at the root of the word question, and quest and question are all part of the same process. We are all on a quest in our lives, and asking the right questions is the key. Asking questions cues our mind to develop answers.
Reader Michael suggests that asking questions and answering them is an excellent anchor for the habits we are striving to develop on our quest toward our goals.
Listen in to hear more about the relationship between quests and questions, why asking the right questions can set your quest on the right course, and how important it is to dig into the root of words that are significant to us (such as habit!).
New listeners: By texting the word "HABITS" to the mobile phone number "33444" you will instantly receive your "hack"/habit tracker/habit development template, or you can download it here: thehabitfactor.com/templates.
