Good Morning: Ask, Listen and Learn

“When problems arise, don’t get furious, get curious.”

Good morning!  
I have always been an advocate of asking questions.
My friends will tell you that whenever I meet someone, I ask them
so many questions they would likely think I am an attorney. As you
know, I am not – but I am a knowledge-seeker. I love to learn about
people, about places, about anything. I love to see how other
people think, why things exist and how they got there.
 
Today’s quote stresses the importance of “questions” in our lives.
I think one skill we could all benefit from is that of asking more
questions. When something goes wrong, instead of getting upset, we
could ask: How did this happen? Why did this happen? Did I
contribute to it in any way? Is there something I could do
differently? What are other ways this situation could have turned
out? The questions are endless and they will be much more
productive than anger.
 
Your Turn:
Today, try to ask 100 questions to yourself or those around you. At
the end of the day, evaluate how much you have learned by having a
“questioning” attitude versus an “I already know the answer”
attitude.
 
Your affirmation:
Each day I learn something new.

 
 

And as always, don’t forget to start your day with a heartfelt: “Something great is going to happen today… I can’t wait to see what it is!”

And when ending your day ask yourself:
“What is one more thing I can do to make today matter?”
