This morning, consciously or unconsciously, you asked yourself what you should wear today. Obviously you were influenced by what you were planning to do, who you were planning to see, etc. But the point is, you’re now wearing the answer to that question. In the same way, we are constantly asking ourselves questions, whether we are aware of it or not, and the life we have (personal as well as professional), is an expression of the answers to those questions. We are literally “wearing” the life given by those questions. Thus, learning to consciously and intentionally pose the right question is at the heart of either changing or optimizing the game.
Thomas John Watson, Sr. was the president of International Business Machines (IBM), who oversaw that company’s growth into an international force from the 1920s to the 1950s. He once said:
“Man has made some machines that can answer questions, provided the facts are profusely stored in them, but we will never be able to make a machine that will ask questions. The ability to ask the right question is more than half the battle of finding the answer.”Download Article 1K Club
