How to answer your own doubts

If there’s ever a doubt or a burning query that is persistent in your mind, reaching out to someone is often the best way to solve it. When this isn’t possible, our next best option is just to ask ourselves.

The challenge is how to write it. Try writing the question as if you were going to send it to somebody. Write it in as many words as you need to and then, just like if you were going to ask someone else, take out as many unnecessary words as possible. Try to offer yourself possible solutions to the question. Ideally, leave yourself only two options that you can summarise as concisely as possible.

The process of writing the questions down in such a summarized form often causes you to think about the problem in a different light. It requires you to form the question very clearly in your head which can often lead to you finding the answer yourself.
