Working Backwards

We live our lives one day at a time. Things happen taking us one way or another. Without much thought. Days, weeks, and months go by quickly. Where did the time go? Popular imagery and story lines tell us that we have to be moving forward. Constantly in motion. Change is occurring around us. We must adapt and evolve. Building families, careers, organizations, networks and friends. Fear of losing...

Why vs What?

It’s common in conversation to ask “what are you doing”? Our responses are mostly monotone for we simply are sharing facts. Describing the activity we find ourselves in at this moment. Not only are we often asked this, but we too ask this same question of others. When changing this question to “why are you doing – what you are doing?”, we tend to pause. Filling...

Two Ways to Generate Options

For not only do the curious understand that there is always new things to learn from everyone they meet. But they sense where their knowledge ends before fully understanding what might be revealed with the next answer they hear...

The Uneven Distribution of Knowledge

We hear this question often. Someone tells us a story, giving us facts together with their opinion. Followed by “What do you think?” We immediately respond with our opinion.
