The question not asked

I recently read about how better questions lead to better results.  A series of examples were given of how a good question oftentimes results in a good answer but, perhaps, a better question would have yielded a better answer.

It’s a good reminder the next time I’m engaging in manic-like self-talk repeatedly asking myself a rapid-fire series of good questions that may only give me, at best, a good answer.

Maybe all I really need is one better question.  Might it be the simple and time-tested classic, “Should I, or shouldn’t I?”

Yet maybe what’s best, because of the answer it oftentimes yields, is the question not asked.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
