Question of the Day: Questions

What kind of questions do you ask yourself?

Do they focus you on where you want to go or on what you would like to avoid?

Good race car drivers say, “Focus on the road, not on the wall.”

All too often, the questions we ask ourselves are unhelpful and even counterproductive.

“Why does this always happen to me?” doesn’t produce very good answers. “What can I do to overcome this setback?” produces much more useful results.

Monitor your questions today and you may be surprised as to the kind of questions you are asking.

    Excellent point. Just saw a college basketball game in which a player had his shot blocked on a fast break. Instead of focussing on the block, he took the next inbounds pass, turned and drained a 3-pointer.
