Questions we don’t but could ask

Is faster better for us?

Is more efficient better for us?

Is more productive better for us?

Is bigger better for us?

Is more convenient better for us?

Is immediate better for us?

Is doing more better for us?

Is technology better for us?

Is being more connected better for us?

There is no right or wrong answer, but surely we could pause to ask these kinds of questions in the whirlwind that life has become.

And if they aren’t better for us, who are they better for and why?

The answer

Isn’t what we need.

Sure, it is what we are programmed by school to think we need.

A better question is what we could choose to be searching for.

Asking questions is the best way to learn, the best way to engage other people, it’s the fastest way to better understanding and it allows time for reflection and thought before acting.

Always having ‘the answer’ leads to talking instead of listening.
