Often we are placed in a situation when a critical decision is necessary. In our modern American culture most of the time we have choices, this is what defines our freedom. And yet, with that freedom to choose, comes responsibility. Many times I find myself stuck, not knowing what to do in a situation. This is why I love the life coaching process and my coaches.

Jon J. Muth retells Tolstoy’s story “The Three Questions” in an illustrated children’s book. Muth creatively puts this literature piece into a setting that appeals to children. Muth also writes with a sophistication for adults to ponder. This story is in a sense a principle belief for many life coaches.

If you are not familiar with Tolstoy’s short story “The Three Questions” then visit the on-line link for a free reading. Also consider investing in the book created by Muth also titled “The Three Questions.”  I also encourage you to share this book with a child in your life.

The questions to ponder are: “What is the right time for every action? Who are the most important people? How do I know what is the most important thing to do?”  

Consider a time each week, month, and season to answer the three questions for insight on your journey. If the mind knows the answers to these questions, I believe a person is awake to the most important things in life.
