I have been doing self-enquiry / questioning exercises to assess where I want to take my career path / life.
I found a simple method of asking "what do you want to achieve? What do you need to do to do it? How would you feel? What you really want is to feel X..." repeat the questioning process with X. This is a simple way of getting to the feeling motivation under the logical ego exterior.
I want question the deeper reasons why I am interested in things because I feel like my interests in things is deeper or more superficial than I thought. I would like to make a critical enquiry into this.
For example: I am interested in software development, but when I look deeper, I realise that it is often the perceived affect of the software that I am actually interested in- e.g. its ability to create 'in the world' change with online networks. I am actually interested in creating networks and bringing people together.
Are there any 'questioning systems' out there that I could use or is it simply a case of common sense reflection?
Self-questioning is as essential part of GTD's 'perspective' (e.g. horizons of focus) | i.e. versus the 'control' system of collecting and processing tasks. In GTD horizons of focus, there are the different levels of self-questioning to define goals, but often there are hidden motivations (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/hidden-motives) behind goals that are preventing access to the real motivation - therefore how do we critically engage with this?
