Asking questions unlocks possibilities that we might not know are there if we insist on thinking we know the answers. The quote “an inquisitive mind is a growing mind” came to me as I was engaged in a discussion about the human experience with a very intelligent high schooler who is thoroughly engrossed by the Star Wars saga. This blog is inspired by that conversation.
For some asking questions poses a unique challenge that I’d very much like to understand. It’s fascinating being on the other side of the spectrum, where I love asking questions. Everytime I ask a question I feel as though my brain is gaining a new level of understanding. Regardless of the field or topic the incoming information is exhilerating.
If you’re one of those individuals that provides nothing but answers, and scarcely asks questions. Do you know why you communicate in this way? Do you find it challenging to formulate questions?
I love science because it’s the world of questions, and seeking to find answers, which leads to more questions. As I sit here staring at the screen, I’m questioning how can I get you to engage in this dialogue. If you make a statement or ask a question you’re partaking in this community. What did I do this specific time that inspired you to interact? I want to learn so that I can repeat it.
This will be my last blog of 2017. I will see you all in 2018 with more questions and insights. What are you creating for yourself and your life in 2018? It’s going to be a beautiful year.
