#1 There is never a bad time to ask “Why?”

  1. Why are we doing this?
  2. Why are we doing it this way?
  3. And why are we expecting it to work?

Even the best of strategies sometimes (always) require frequent check-ins with your critical self to answer these questions, and to get re-centered and re-focused.
And then? Then it’s all go — full steam forward without nagging doubts.

#2 Problems ― We Were Made to Solve Them.

We may as well face it. Mankind is good at problem-solving. So find the problems you love to solve, and you’ll enjoy your work. And while you’re at it, consider allowing others to solve the problem you hired them to solve. Give them the problem, not the solution, and allow them to enjoy their work too! You’ll get a better product and a better deal.

#3 Right and Wrong Problems

Is your busy-ness in balance with your feeling of accomplishment? To find out if you’re solving the right problems, ask the right questions. See #1.

Only a crystal clear question yields a transparent answer.
