What are the three largest decisions you'll make in your life time?
I first heard this question from Rabbi Benzion Klatzko to a room full of students. I have subsequently asked this questions to hundreds if not thousands of young people and nearly all of them get it...well, at least the first two questions. Who will you marry? What will you do for work? Many people suggest choice of where to live. I remind the guys, wherever your wife decides...happy wife is a happy life. Nonetheless, the third question often evades the brightest minds.
What is your value system?
The next step in our analysis is working through the analysis of which of these three questions are most important to address first. Mathematically, it would make sense to address the question that will most greatly impact the other two. When framed like this, most agree that your value system will have a huge impact on who you marry and what you do for a living. Yet when we take steps back we see that our society encourages hard work in high school so you can get into a good college, hard work in college so you can get a good job, and hard work at your workplace so you can get ahead or receive that coveted promotion. It isn't until one arrives at their forties or fifties do they have an avoidable midlife crisis.
It isn't until one arrives at their forties or fifties do they have this avoidable midlife crisis. Why not have it in your twenties?
In this light, it is super important to discover who you are.
Below is a video from the TRIBE Course that helps you more deeply understand your inner world, the the many relationships you have and the influence of world around you. In the course we also address the roles that we play and how we fit into our own priority system. Do you put others first? Do you demand a lot from others? We also get into the influence others have over us, the societal honors that people often trap themselves in, and how to create inner harmony through deeply understanding and taking care of the dynamic components and talents that you have.
Each video is followed by a workshop and you can only do one video per week. The reason for this is to emphasize the week long digestion that happens. Sometimes less is more. If you packed all of this wisdom and self knowledge into a single Sunday, it would not have the same effect because it is the week that follows that enables you to continue to think and internalize the concepts in a hyper personal way.
