When you go to your doctor, you want her to ask the right questions. In fact, you should be very concerned if your doctor is not asking you the right questions. If she is not asking the right questions, it would be prudent on your part to find a new doctor. It just might save your life.
Do you ever think about the questions people are asking? Are they asking to learn? Are they trying to solve the problem at hand or get a better understanding? A person’s questions are going to tell you a lot about them. And if they are not asking questions, that should be a concern as well.
Judge a man by his questions, not by his answers. –Voltaire
We are not supposed to be judgmental of others, but we need to consider the questions they are asking. Why are they not asking the right questions? Is it because you are not clear in the information you are giving them? Do they not care? Or is it a matter of competency?
What about your questions? Are you asking the right ones? As Tony Robbins says, “The quality of your questions determines the quality of your life.” If you want to improve the quality of your life, start with the questions you are asking yourself? Remove the, “I wish I was ____,” and ask what you need to do to get where you want to go. Once you can start asking the right questions, you can start working on the solutions.
