“The unexamined life is not worth living”
What would you say if someone at a party asked you, “Who are you?” Depending on the context, you might answer in terms of a relationship, (“I’m Andy’s friend.”), your status in the world (“I own a major law firm.”), or based on what you do (“I am a programmer.”)
Those things are important, to be sure, and we address those issues with the Lenses of: People, the World, and Work.
These questions on the hearts are designed to help you understand who are you, and how do you think and feel. What are you grateful for, and who is in charge of your life? What does it feel like to be you, and what is essential to the experiences you want?
What do you value? What is your character, and do you strive to be a good person when there are forces at work that might make it hard or unrewarding to be good? Is good health important to you, and if so, are you taking care of it?
Do you know how to think in all the ways there are?
What is your relationship with your self. Do you forgive your mistakes. What is your story so far?
Finally we ask, “Are you who you say you are?” Most of us describe ourselves as the person we wish we were instead of who we actually are. Being who you say you are takes work. Not only must you examine yourself honestly, you must strive to live up to the person you want to be.
