SocratesKnowledge is power.
If you know how (and have the courage) to ask the right questions, the answers will give you the direction and strength that you need for continued growth and success.
Have you asked yourself “why” lately?
Discover what Why can do for you.

Yesterday, I read an awe inspiring article on my friend Chris Garrett’s blog that posed the question “Why” in a variety of forms and presented how merely asking questions of ourselves is so beneficial to our growth.
The simplicity is astounding!

Just asking the question “why” can do so many things.

When a child asks why something is the way it is, and they receive a proper answer, they are learning. Thank goodness children have an innate urge that causes them to grow through asking questions. Many of us have hit a glass ceiling because we cease to examine why we do what we do, why it works, why it doesn’t work, or why others find value in our offerings.

Asking ourselves “why” on a regular basis increases the potential for success.

I imagine many wise people are asking themselves (and others) questions all the time… how else does one gain such insight or motivation? One might wonder why Socrates answered questions in the form of a question, but one does not have to wonder why Socrates was so wise.

  1. I have been asking why since I was about 3 years old. My mother would get frustrated to the point of ‘Because I said so!’. Adults often discourage the questioning due to lack of time and patience.
    Understanding the why helps us to determine the value of actions. If we don’t know why something is done a particular way, we can never learn to improve or change.
    Something to consider:
    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
    Albert Einstein
    I still require a GOOD reason for doing things. ‘Because I said so’ may get obedience, but it rarely develops creative thinking or personal growth.

  2. Why Ralph,
    What a thought! As per your suggestion, I asked myself why I might consider changing our domain name to the one mentioned above and then decided I’d leave the name for someone else to pick up 😉
    P.S. Any snow in Kelowna?
