Asking The Right Question…

Posted By: Randy GageNovember 12, 2012

Since Risky Is the New Safe has hit ALL the bestsellers lists (Thank you guys for that!), I thought it would be fun to take some of the issues raised in the book, and showcase some of the tremendous opportunities they offer – simply by changing the questions you ask.

As you probably know by now, “Risky” a mind-bending, head-rattling, thought-provoking look at the future.  What will happen in it, what challenges will that create, and finally what opportunities this all will offer.

And that all comes about by asking the right question…

Because if you ask the wrong question – the answer is irrelevant. 

So to help you get even more out of the book, here’s a sampling of some near-future scenarios – and some of the questions they raise.  More importantly, however, the difference between asking the wrong question – versus what may be a better one.

I originally prepared this as bonus material for my author page on Amazon.com.  But since they limit the length, I’m printing the whole thing here for you.

The risk takers who ask – and are then able to answer – these questions, will be the next generation of dot-com billionaires, political leaders and entrepreneurial visionaries.

I hope you enjoy the book, the questions it raises, and the headaches they cause!

  8. I love those questions. Here is another question about the moon.  What is on the other side of the moon?  I mean really does anyone know?  Is there water on the moon?  Honestly, I might want to visit, but I wouldn't want to stay.  Really, I think it is just a piece of the earth that broke off at some point, and now it is just cold, ugly and dirty.
     
    I wonder if human nature will change?  If it doesn't we should definitely look to the past for some of these answers to the future.  The future seems really exciting.  I don't think we do that much, look to the past.  Even I don't enough in my own life.
     
    Randy, I'm sorry about what I said before about your book.  I really love it.  I just wanted on line love again.  You know us socialists always looking to get something.......  a ha ha:{  I'm a little spoiled and selfish sometimes.  But, I do have pretty hair.
     
    Okay, one more thing.  I really love ancient mysteries.  I think if the Atlantis that Pluto talks about was real, it was something like the future you are predicting.  Wouldn't that be something to find it?  I mean just think we are on the brinks of all this technology and we still don't know how the ancient people built the pyramids.  I think they had better technology than we do.  I hope I am around when these mysteries get solved.  Because here is the thing:  If they had all that advanced technology, what the hell happened?
     
    I am really going to think about your questions, I like them.

  10. Hi Randy - still waiting for my copy of 'Risky' - any idea when I can expect it?  I ordered right at the beginning when you first opened up for orders and expected to receive it at the beginning of this month.

      1. @Randy_Gage Hi Randy.  Not arrived.  Please may I have a number/email address for lormette so that I can communicate with her

  12. Hi  Randy,
    Met you last night at the fundraiser event for Shawne Duperon's worthwhile project, 'Forgive'. The connection between her and you is amazing, she was so grateful for your support to her that it showed me how supportive to the project you have been. Helping people understand life is a contribution that many people miss. This is a reason why your blog is provocative and offers a first-step solution to humanity's problems. As you clearly point out, asking questions, probing into the meaning of life is essential to arm, defend and prepare ourselves for the future. No one knows the future events. That is what makes life exciting and challenging at the same time. But, Randy, did you know, that we do have access to the mind of God? How, you may ask? So, what you may think. To me, a critical thinker will consider beyond the sensibilities of this life to ask, what's next? Don't you wonder?

  15. Great questions Particularly the one on How to teach Children to think.  We already have way too many at all ages who don't.

  17. Some greats question there. But queries about this particular one.
     
    "Wrong question: Will I really be able to buy a home on the ocean floor with a coral reef garden and sharks swimming by?
    Better question: How will the value of waterfloor real estate effect the value of waterfront real estate?"
     
    I thought there is no relation between the wrong question and better question. On what context did these questions come from? (Opps am I asking the wrong question) 🙂

    that broke off at some point, and now it is just cold, ugly and dirty.

Why do so many people do what someone else tells them to do, and demean those who question why, how?Why do these same people use "____"told me to do it! as an excuse to not think, and although themselves or people close to them to come to harm?Why does someone else get to decide how much money you make, how you spend your time, and who you love?Why do so many people hold up anyone with or claiming authority as smarter/better and even infallible?Why do people engage in class warfare, when we are all human beings with our own wants and needs?Why do people never look at themselves and how their behavior for good or evil impacts the world?Why do people and corrupt organizations believe everyone is entitled to a level of comfort and security?Why do people ridicule and use force against people who wish to achieve their own goals, even though they may benefit from the results?Why is pursuing what is important to you considered evil, but sacrificing yourself for "the common good", your church, your family, society, the company, etc. considered virtuous?Why is the government considered the goto organization when/wherever there is human suffering?Why is College, a "good" job, and retirement considered the only way to live?Why are people encouraged and sometimes forced to do meaningless work because it's "normal" or safe?Why do so many authority figures including parents, bosses, teachers, government officials, mental health professionals, managers, etc. and their followers believe that anyone has a right to label, pigeonhole, and define the potential and capability of another human being?Why do people believe that their business, job, or industry deserves special protection from change?Why do people need the blessing of institutions,experts, etc.in order to do anything worthwhile?Why is a lack of educational attainment considered a mark of laziness or ineptitude?Why is educational attainment equated with intelligence and ability?Why do individuals and organizations not have more faith individual thinking?Why do we continue to treat human beings like cogs in a vast machine?Why do so many see Capitalism as a zero sum game where some are Masters and others are Slaves?Why do people complain about how unfair life is and never take a risk?Why do people put down those who have either achieved or are working towards a goal?Why do so many people outsource raising their children to shrinks, teachers, and others?Why don't more people stand up for the rights of individuals?Why does someone else have the right to plan and regulate our lives?Why do we buy into the idea that there is only one way to think, be, and act?Why do people accept potentially harmful drugs and treatments because they want a quick fix/aren't willing to question?Why do we support a school system which punishes free-thinking, creativity, and encourages a stratified society?Why do we continue to have a society where people should "know their place".Why do we still continue to base someone's potential/worth on their title/education/socioeconomic roots?

      1. @ThomasMrak Some people ask why? I ask why not?  No, I'm just kiddin' you Thomas.  You ask a lot of good questions. 🙂

    8. I love those questions. Here is another question about the moon.  What is on the other side of the moon?  I mean really does anyone know?  Is there water on the moon?  Honestly, I might want to visit, but I wouldn't want to stay.  Really, I think it is just a piece of the earth that broke off at some point, and now it is just cold, ugly and dirty.
       
      I wonder if human nature will change?  If it doesn't we should definitely look to the past for some of these answers to the future.  The future seems really exciting.  I don't think we do that much, look to the past.  Even I don't enough in my own life.
       
      Randy, I'm sorry about what I said before about your book.  I really love it.  I just wanted on line love again.  You know us socialists always looking to get something.......  a ha ha:{  I'm a little spoiled and selfish sometimes.  But, I do have pretty hair.
       
      Okay, one more thing.  I really love ancient mysteries.  I think if the Atlantis that Pluto talks about was real, it was something like the future you are predicting.  Wouldn't that be something to find it?  I mean just think we are on the brinks of all this technology and we still don't know how the ancient people built the pyramids.  I think they had better technology than we do.  I hope I am around when these mysteries get solved.  Because here is the thing:  If they had all that advanced technology, what the hell happened?
       
      I am really going to think about your questions, I like them.

    10. Hi Randy - still waiting for my copy of 'Risky' - any idea when I can expect it?  I ordered right at the beginning when you first opened up for orders and expected to receive it at the beginning of this month.

        1. @Randy_Gage Hi Randy.  Not arrived.  Please may I have a number/email address for lormette so that I can communicate with her

    12. Hi  Randy,
      Met you last night at the fundraiser event for Shawne Duperon's worthwhile project, 'Forgive'. The connection between her and you is amazing, she was so grateful for your support to her that it showed me how supportive to the project you have been. Helping people understand life is a contribution that many people miss. This is a reason why your blog is provocative and offers a first-step solution to humanity's problems. As you clearly point out, asking questions, probing into the meaning of life is essential to arm, defend and prepare ourselves for the future. No one knows the future events. That is what makes life exciting and challenging at the same time. But, Randy, did you know, that we do have access to the mind of God? How, you may ask? So, what you may think. To me, a critical thinker will consider beyond the sensibilities of this life to ask, what's next? Don't you wonder?

    15. Great questions Particularly the one on How to teach Children to think.  We already have way too many at all ages who don't.

    17. Some greats question there. But queries about this particular one.
       
      "Wrong question: Will I really be able to buy a home on the ocean floor with a coral reef garden and sharks swimming by?
      Better question: How will the value of waterfloor real estate effect the value of waterfront real estate?"
       
      I thought there is no relation between the wrong question and better question. On what context did these questions come from? (Opps am I asking the wrong question) 🙂

      that broke off at some point, and now it is just cold, ugly and dirty.
