The Power of the Right Question

Question marks

Someone has observed, “the only way to get the right answer is to ask the right question.” For most people, they look for information, not insight.

In my last post, I argued you need to take time to evaluate your life. But how? What measuring stick do you put against the wall against which to stand? 

The key that unlocks our unexplored doors of life are questions. With questions, you stand in front of a mirror, all alone and see who you really are. 

What questions do you ask of yourself to “peel your own onion?” Here’s a limited list of questions to ponder over a cup of coffee (or a soft drink if your preference).

  • What do I dread?
  • What do I anticipate?
  • What do I want to enjoy?
  • What do I need to focus on?
  • What do I need to learn?
  • What do I need to improve?
  • What do I need to change?
  • What do I need to strengthen?

Get the right answers for your direction. Ask good questions. 

(What question would you add to the list above?)
