What do you hate NOT doing?

What’s the project you start working on now? Of the 100 ideas running in your mind, which one should take priority?

What do you hate NOT doing?

Say you were held captive for 100 days with no access to the outside world. When you come back,

  2. Who would you miss the most?

This question helps me clarify a lot of things. I always think.
