Ask the Right Question

Posted By: Randy GageNovember 5, 2012

If you ask the wrong question – the answer is irrelevant.

And there are lots of people and institutions that specialize in getting you to ask the wrong question.  One of the things that Risky Is the New Safe can do for you, is to lead you to ask better questions.  Let me give you an example:

America goes to the polls tomorrow, and here’s the question almost everyone seems to be asking: Between President Obama and Governor Romney – who can create more jobs?

Wrong question.  Here are a couple better ones…

What is the real role of government to create jobs?  What really is the role of government to create prosperity for its citizens?  What is the personal responsibility of citizens in creating their own prosperity?

Asking better questions will take you to dramatically better results.  Watch my author page on Amazon for more questions like this from the book.  They haven’t posted it yet, but should have it up within a few days.  It doesn’t matter if we are talking about marketing, social media, cloning, the cloud, or investing:  the questions you ask will determine if the answers you receive really matter to you!

  5. And along with asking the right questions, comes the skill of Listening, which is one that we all need to master, myself included. As we all know, many people tend to listen to someone while at the same time thinking about what we feel, how we'll reply or react rather than being 100% present. IF we're present and really HEAR whats being said after asking the right question, we'll receive what the Universe intended. '

  7. I am so glad you said "if the answers matter to you".  Because, I am sure my answers to the above questions might be different than yours.  You posed some great questions Randy, however I think if you ask yourself who would create more jobs Romney or Obama you may come to those questions anyway.  I did.   So, I am not sure about wrong questions, because if you are a critical thinker any question could lead you to more questions.  And hey, questioning is great!

  9. People create better lives for themselves and others.I really tire of people telling each of us how to run our lives, and exploiting people by making promises that they'll make life better while convincing them they are weak, helpless, victims.

  11. I encountered a stranger who message me with a question.
    "How do be a coach?"
    "Take up a course"
    "Where?"
    "Google it."
    She got her answer, but not my best answer.
