What's the Answer?

May 4, 2021

Everyone is looking for the answer to the question of the moment, but few ask the question well enough to get the answer they are looking for.

A few tips:

  • Craft the question then read it as if you DIDN'T know what's going on in your head
  • Think of the follow up questions people might ask
  • What background might help someone help you? Just enough of your life story...
  • Be as explicit and to the point as possible; avoid being vague
  • Don't take responses or answers at face value; dig deeper to understand what they really mean (if you went to this much trouble to ask a good question, make sure you're getting good answers)
