Something to Think About

In Leo Tolstoy’s short story, Three Questions, Tolstoy answers three questions in the short story: “The King went up to him and said: “I have come to you, wise hermit, to ask you to answer three questions: How can I learn to do the right thing at the right time? Who are the people I most need, and to whom should I, therefore, pay more attention than to the rest? And, what affairs are the most important, and need my first attention?”

How would you answer these questions for the king?
