Day 24: What’s your word?

DAY 24 of 30 Little Steps

What's your word?

In my job I tend to ask this type of question often and it never ceases to amaze me how difficult it can be to answer:-

"What is it you actually want?"

Happiness, Respect, Confidence and many other variations often come up. But what I find interesting is that most often, people seem to want something that is "fluid". Meaning that you can't be 'happy' all the time, that would be impossible.

My word is "content'. To me it means that I can judge my performance, the outcome of a situation or my overall state of mind in a simple way. "Am I content?"

What one word describes what you are looking for, what you really want?
