Answering These 13 Life Questions Will Make You Wiser

We've asked some brilliant and accomplished individuals -- best-selling authors, Nobel Prize-winning scientists, top artists, entrepreneurs, athletes, and more -- to share practical wisdom they've learned in the course of their lives and careers.

The results have been wonderful, but we want to cast a much wider net.

Below you'll find 13 questions about topics that are central to a well-lived life. Answer them for your own sake. It's a great opportunity for self-reflection and contemplation. Plus, your answers will end up helping others, as we'll be featuring reader submissions regularly on HuffPost. (Bookmark this page for tonight or this weekend If you don't have time to answer the questions now.) Either way, take the time. You'll be glad you did.
