"the greatest question in our life time is....what matters most?"
If you asked the average person what matters most to you they would probably say my family. And that is as it should be. But that's not all that matters because there is always more that one answer to the question. So if you accept the first answer that pops into your head you've only scratched the surface to the most important question in your life.
"lives are waster pursuing what matters least while ignoring the simple things where happiness resides"
The only way to access what matters most is to live with the question for a few days. Print out the question on an index card to piece of paper and put it where you will see it. Then occasionally pause and the contemplate what it means to you. Think about it in the shower, when driving our cleaning the house. Think on it when you wake up and before you go to sleep. You will be surprised at what surfaces?
