What should you be doing right now?
Working on a project? Checking your email? Walking the dog? Calling your mom?
Do you feel guilty yet?
What about the bigger picture questions? Like...
No matter who you are, you probably have a stack of “shoulds" lying around somewhere. Maybe they’re tucked in the back of your closet or in the refrigerator or in a planner.
But there is one question you may have never asked yourself:
What MUST you do?
That is, as Shakespeare and Elle Luna said, the question.
If you happen to be questioning your current and future steps in life, Elle Luna’s book, The Crossroads of Should and Must, is to the rescue.
In the pages of her epically beautiful book, she walks readers through her own journey of self-doubt, confusion and questioning to eventually arrive at what she has deemed her “must”, a deep-seated, self-driven, captivating necessity that she must chase.
Spoiler alert: we all have a must!
It is not a self-help book in the traditional sense. Instead, it is more like leafing through the journal of a watercolor art therapist, replete with more questions than answers.
Not because Elle Luna is lost, but because she knows that questions are how someone finds their own path, and not the one that other people said they should take.
Nevertheless, she also manages to squeeze in plenty of practical strategies along the way so that readers have plenty of steps to take as they find the answers to these head-scratching questions.
Elle’s book began as a wildly popular essay on Medium, and then evolved into The Crossroads of Should and Must. If you are not sure about this whole should/must dichotomy, give it a look.
So, what should you do next?
You must decide.
Let's change the world.
