Question 2 of 2.
What if instead of asking what job you want to do (when you grow up) you ask what problem or difficulty in the world you want to solve?
What if we asked this of our children?
Perhaps this would be one way of teaching ourselves to look beyond our own wishes to acquire status or advantage or power over others.
And maybe this simple question would be one way we could help ourselves to address what the world really needs from us, rather than what we think we’re entitled to get from it.
With thanks to P who pointed me towards this question.
