FAQ’s

August 16, 2007

Do you have Frequently Asked Questions in your life? Questions that you ask or are asked of you. Questions other than “Where are the car keys?” or “Do you know where the TV remote disappeared to?”

We’ve been taught that to find to right answers, we need to ask the right questions. That is really where to hard work begins–what are the right questions. Anthony Robbins said, “Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.

As we grow up, or perhaps ‘get older’ is a better term, we often stop asking questions. Little children are always asking questions. The world in new and exciting for them. Then the questions slow down or stop. Neil Postman said, “Children enter school as question marks and leave as periods.”

I think we all need to get the question marks back into our lives. Our lives will be less routine and complacent and more open to learning and perhaps some exciting changes.

So what are some good questions for you right now?

ā€˜Iā€™d rather know some of the questions than all of the answers.ā€™ā€” James Thurber
