A lot of physicians, including Elisa, love to travel. Dr. Weili (pronunced "Way Lee") Gray, host of the Dare to Dream Physician Travel Podcast talks about her journey from burnout to life planning to traveling around the world while still enjoying working as a physician. A pivoting point in Weili’s life was when she volunteered at a conference for financial advisors for a life planning session.
In this episode, Weili mentions the three questions of life planning. Elisa made a YouTube video on the three questions of life planning which you can find on her YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/wealthymindsetmd (the precursor to The Grow Your Wealthy Mindset Podcast), the direct link to the Kinder questions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFEqA6sU5OY&t=4s
George Kinder’s Three Questions:
Question 1: Design Your Life
I want you to imagine that you are financially secure, that you have enough money to take care of your needs, now and in the future. The question is, how would you live your life? What would you do with the money? Would you change anything? Let yourself go. Don’t hold back your dreams. Describe a life that is complete, that is richly yours.
Question 2: You Have Less Time
This time, you visit your doctor who tells you that you have five to ten years left to live. The good part is that you won’t ever feel sick. The bad news is that you will have no notice of the moment of your death. What will you do in the time you have remaining to live? Will you change your life, and how will you do it?
Question 3: Today’s the Day
This time, your doctor shocks you with the news that you have only one day left to live. Notice what feelings arise as you confront your very real mortality. Ask yourself: What dreams will be left unfulfilled? What do I wish I had finished or had been? What do I wish I had done? [Did I miss anything]?
