Asking the question is a good start. It certainly puts you on a better path than those who don’t even think in terms of generosity.
Some additional questions to be asked:
- Is there more I can give without bankrupting myself? Comfort is fine, no need to destroy yourself, but if you’re comfortable, perhaps there is a bit more generosity available.
- Is there anything I’m holding back? Do I need to?
- Do I listen as much as I talk? Generosity is two-sided.
Things not to worry about:
- Does everybody like what I do? That’s not a correlation to generosity. People don’t like certain books, foods, or products. That doesn’t always have to do with whether the makers are generous in their marketing or not, it’s the taste of the consumer.
