#0 Without Wax

You must know, in the end of letter, people used to say sincerely, name. From the book I read, sincerely means without wax. It comes from the Renaissance age; when a sculptor finished the sculpture, he sometimes added the wax to patch the defects. So, when people add sincerely in their letter, it means it is what it is. The letter said what really is, without any wax, without any additional words.

 “How you measure your competition? How do you realize that you lose?”
“Just like any competition, if someone finally get the prize, then I lose. In this case, if someone finally got her, then I lose her”
“So, until she’s belong to someone, you won’t give up to get her?”
“Probably, yes”

I have found my new talent lately, asking people. In some conditions, I used to ask people about their lives, their future plan, things they love, things they are currently studying of, their love life, and many things. Evidently, people are okay to share their story of life (some people felt trapped after being questioned, though). The more I ask people, the more I get stories, new wave of thinking and seeing life.

Anyhow, I won’t see further before I go deeper.

Questions I give to people are not a single thing before I ask my self. Their stories won’t be so telling before I know my story.

So I found an article that recommend some questions to gain insight. Combined with a book (25 ways blablabla People by John C. Maxwel) I choose questions that I should answer here, in my blog:

  1. “What’s the most unexpected thing you’ve learned along the way?”
  2. “If you could call yourself five years ago and had 30 seconds, what would you say?”
  3. What is the best piece of advice you have been given?
  4. What is the best question anyone has ever asked you? …and how did you answer?
  5. “How will you make this world a better place than when you came into it?”
  6. “When you die, what do you want to be remembered for?”
  7. Are you doing what you thought you would be doing when you were growing up?
  8. What are your greatest regrets, and what might you change about them if you could?
  9. What is the craziest belief (the one that fewest educated people will agree with) that you hold?  Why do you believe it?
  10. Make a request where the “right thing to do” is for the other person to say no to you.
  11. Are you lucky?
  12. What would you do if you were homeless?
  13. Who are you when no one’s watching?
  14. What are you pretending not to know?
  15. What is the saddest moment in your life?

 

Here, I will go deeper to go further, without any wax.
