Better Questions

What’s a closely held belief you haven’t questioned lately?
When’s the last time you changed your mind?
Why are you clinging to blind certainty?

Want to change something?
Change often starts with a question.

Holding onto a precious belief?
Question it.

Want a better answer?
Ask a better question.

Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?

Who is the person you want to become?
What is truly important?
When will you let go?
Where do you want to be?
Why do you give so much meaning to (blank)?
How will you define your own success?

Better questions lead to better answers, and those answers allow us to more confidently traverse the path we’re on, or change our minds and find a new path. Either way we win.
