The importance of asking questions

The Challenge

We’re building Mindhive 2.0 with a focus on insight.

We continually return to the power of questioning.

"Great doubt, great enlightenment. Little doubt, little enlightenment. No doubt, no enlightenment."

"It probably feels more satisfying to provide an answer, but I suspect that at least some small part of that is self-aggrandizing and driven by ego, even in the kindest and most generous of us. There is a certain validation and self-importance that comes with solving someone's query, even when predominantly motivated by good intent. On the other hand, I suspect that asking a question is the more innately rewarding, and has the capacity to deliver a more meaningful experience. It requires a certain level of humility and vulnerability, and it takes courage to put yourself out there like that. I think that as edifying and instructive as answering a question can be, there seems to be more potential for growth, enlightenment, and character development in asking one."

Are you able to share learnings, links, and/or reflections on the power of asking questions that have been influential to you and your life?
