Questions and Clarity.

A little while back – how long exactly I’m not sure – I wrote myself a short, simple guide to less stress and more productivity. It took the form of a number of questions that I used to prompt myself to remember what is truly important so I could have more clarity.

Here’s the list in its entirety. Mostly unedited from the original. There’s some business stuff but it’s mostly bigger picture.
