You won’t get the right answer from the wrong question

If you’re struggling with a problem, it can feel like you just don’t have the answer.

What’s often happening is that you’re actually just asking the wrong question.

When you go to someone else for advice, the first thing someone who’s great at advice will do is actually ask a question; the right question.

The answer to your problem will lie in the answers to the right questions.

Your quickest solution will always be to go to someone who can ask you those questions without you wasting time overthinking it.

But, if you don’t have someone to go to, try tackling the problem from a different angle with different questions.

Even if it doesn’t get you all the way there, it will get your closer.
