Tim Ferriss frequently says the solution to most problems is a better set of questions. Here are three new questions for you (plus, why am I dressed like that?):

I learned two important things in 2021.

First, when you approach your problems and ambitions with a spirit of adventure, a lot hard stuff starts to become easy. (I’ll be talking about this a lot in the near future.)

Second, say less and ask more. I lost two fantastic clients this year because I made too many assumptions and didn’t ask enough questions to find what they really needed. It stings, but I’m grateful for the lesson.

But speaking of questions, some of the most important questions are the ones you ask yourself. (And if you’re asking yourself why I’m dressed like the Unabomber in the above video, we’ll get to that.)

Here are three questions that I guarantee will help you live your best life in 2022 and beyond.

If you’re in any kind of business or profession that serves other people (that’s essentially all of us), you will find new clarity, energy, and commitment in everything you do when you have a solid and sincere answer to these three questions:

1. Do I truly believe that each person is here on this earth for something profoundly important?
2. Do I believe that I’m here for something profoundly important?
3. Based on my answers to the first two questions, how am I going to act and show up in the world from this point on?

There’s a bonus fourth question: Why is Jacob dressed like the Unabomber?

The short answer is we just bought a new home,  and the new home office has bad lighting and no insulation. It’s cold here.

But check out the room! I literally have a new business under construction. The office is unfinished but ready for some rapid positive change. I hope you are, too.
