To be brilliant,
and therefore do brilliant things —
We must ask great questions.
“A prudent question is one-half of wisdom.” — Sir Francis Bacon
Thousands of questions and decisions surround us every day. Big and small.
We are all looking for answers.
Who am I? What’s my why? How do we improve? Can I make ___ better? What’s most important?…
What should I do today? How do I make new friends? What should I eat?
Asking questions illuminates who we are and what we do. It shines a light on our inner world and gives us a view where we fit in the external world.
Action Step — Great questions lead to great answers. Ask great questions every day.
Ask at least one a day.
Keep a list of questions.
Periodically review them.
When you feel compelled to, answer and re-answer them.
Ask others to give you their answers too.
