Do you have answers to the big questions?
You know when you’ve gone on a training course, group/team day or similar and they ask you to introduce yourself and then tell you which famous person (dead or alive, because apparently smell isn’t a concern at training facilitators dinner parties) you’d like to have dinner with?
Well, apart from the time that I said hitler I’ve always had to think really hard about it. See, I don’t have idols. Sure, there are many people I’d like to meet, or have been thrilled to meet. Or nerdgasm’d to have been jumped on by:
But my point is, I don’t daydream about having dinner with them. I never think about it when I’m not being asked in a small training room.
I don’t know if that’s a “big” question as such.
But the other, bigger one is “when you were a kid, what did you want to do when you grew up?”
I literally don’t know. I don’t remember ever having daydreams about this or that. I can remember a whole two instances when I thought about being a singer. I can remember about how I’ve written in one form or another my whole life. I don’t remember it being a want as a kid. It was something I did, but I don’t know if that qualifies it as a dream.
What is the meaning of life?
Of course, the ultimate big question is “what is the meaning of life?”. In my view it is answerable but not define-able.
The meaning of life is whatever you want it to be. And 42.
How do you handle “the big questions”?
