The best questions are those that don’t have an answer.
If the question is all over with a quick answer consisting of a word or two then we have missed the opportunity to ask a great question. Great questions allow us to grapple with big ideas. Ideas that make a difference. Complex and strategic ideas.
Great questions can change everything. They get us to reconsider, to ponder and to grapple with our existing thoughts. They can be the small lever that makes a big change in how we approach our challenges.
They sometimes make us feel uneasy, they could even be unsettling.
In the end though, a great question will always come through, delivering rich and useful insights.
