I choose to approach personal growth from a compound interest method.
What do I mean by this?
I'd always long for an Ayahuasca experience, a 10-day Vipassana Retreat, a solo-traveling opportunity... Something intense and deep, that would give me food for thought about my own self for a while. Don't get me wrong, I actually did all the above and gain so much value from it.
Yet, I changed this approach in 2021, initially forced by external circumstances, but ended up finding much fulfilment in this new method.
Now my new goal is to every day uncover something about my self. How hard can this be? I have 24 hs to learn something about my way to approach life, my character, beliefs, vision, life... simple self observation. I call it radical self-inquiry- meaning, I ask myself hard questions.
A few favs atm are:
What’s being said that I’m not hearing? How and in what moments do I hold duality in my life? If I were a rat, what's the cheese I'm running after right now? Who was I before I became who I thought I had to be? In what area of my life do I justify myself the most?
