Children by nature are curious. They want to know and understand everything around them and aren't afraid to ask. Anyone who has spent a decent amount of time with a child can attest that their ability to ask questions is endless. In fact, it can get rather annoying. As we grow into adults, we lose that curiosity. At the risk of sounding annoying and dumb, we refrain from asking multiple questions. We except the first answer to the questions we ask, without additional follow up. However, knowing the first "answer" doesn't always solve any problems.
This week's intention, Ask Why, was inspired by an article I read last week. The article talks about how asking just a few more questions a day can help solve more problems. It’s about getting to the root of the problem.
So this week, I encourage you to ask "Why?" In fact, I encourage you to ask it multiple times. Learn about your friends, your coworkers, your clients, yourself! Dig deeper into the problems you encounter and challenges you face. The resolution could be simple by just asking a few more follow-up questions. Remember, not to let fear of sounding mundane, unaware, and most importantly curious, stop you.
As always, thank you for reading, XO-
