Change the Questions

By: G.Torok.

If you’re not getting the answers you want – change the questions.

I heard this valuable advice from Joe Calloway. Let’s look a little deeper into this gem. I agree that asking the right question is much more difficult than answering the question. Asking the question determines the perspective, responsibility and value of the answer.

Smart people ask smart questions. Stupid people ask stupid questions.

Don’t buy into the myth “There are no stupid questions.”

The reality is that there are stupid questions. If you want better results, ask smarter questions.

For example:

If you have been asking, “Why won’t anybody hire me?” change the question to “What can I do to get hired?”

If you have been asking, “Why is business slow?” change the question to “What can I do to improve my business?”

If you have been asking, “Why do I feel so down?” change the question to “ What can I do to feel excited about my possibilities?”

If you don’t like the answers – change the question

    Sometimes we have to change our perspective to get answers

      Fully agree, changing perspective and bringing new attitude will surely create different results, and results will be right in front 🙂

    sometimes our problems dont let us think properly about the life..
    sometimes the solution of the problem is inside us…its just a matter of believing in yourself..

      Your point of view is excellent, sometime we just need to put our mind working in opposite direction when things are not working as per our desire, ask differently and be more creative, right answers will follow you. Thanks for dropping by 🙂
