Far from being an easy question, this is one of the most difficult ones to
answer and your answer may still be evolving when you reach your
retirement. I think, though, that the one "question word" you've left out
of your list is the most important one and the real starting point from
which to reach answers to the others: you left out "why." "What" and "how"
only get answered with any conviction when "why" has been answered first.

Good luck.

Karl
