Welcome to Big Idea Tuesday! 


On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru Purohit talks about why it’s a great time to slow down and reflect and five critical life questions to ask during self-quarantine.


  1. Are you constantly worrying about letting others down?
  2. Is it extremely hard for you to speak up about what you want and don’t want?
  3. Do you feel guilty pursuing your goals and dreams?
  4. Do you please others to avoid short-term pain, but underestimate the pain of living a life of regret?
  5. Does the critical inner voice in your head prevent you from even starting?


At some point in your life, you come to a crossroads where you have to ask yourself, "Whose life am I living?"⁣

Am I living a life true to me? Or am I suppressing my goals and dreams to appease my parents, my boss, society, or some authority figure?⁣

Living a life true to you is scary. It usually requires you to set boundaries and remind those around you that your life is your own to live.⁣

Easier said than done, of course. ⁣

Setting boundaries and breaking expectations can be so painful, especially with the ones we love the most.⁣

But you know what is much more painful? Living a life filled with regret. And then one day waking up on your deathbed, realizing the opinions and projections of others were not as important as we once thought they were.⁣

No one has written about this more eloquently than Bronnie Ware, author of the Top Five Regrets of the Dying. You can follow Bronnie Ware here.
