What’s Your Big Question—How Will You Answer It?
“The marvelous thing about a good question is that it shapes our identity as much by the asking as it does by the answering.” – David Whyte.
As the second month of this new year races to an end, several questions must be swirling in your mind.
Some of your questions might be focused on what’s behind you. Some might be centered on what you’re doing today. And others might be forward-looking.
However, as anxious as you might be to find answers to all your questions, it might be impossible for you to answer them all in one sitting. Therefore, to increase the chances of accurately answering your questions, you should prioritize them.
Your challenge then is to identify your big question‒that question that if answered, would render several of your other questions irrelevant.
However, you should not be too quick to identify that question. First, you should establish a list of criteria to help you to identify and answer that big question. In so doing, you’d have constructed a pathway to help you find the answer that gives you the best odds to reach the finish line.
So, as we race to the end of the second month of 2021, I encourage you to establish a list of criteria to help you identify and answer your biggest question.
You’ll be glad you did.
