Motivational Power Quote

Ask Questions With an Open Mind

"Ask questions all your life.

It is the best way to learn."

Peter Ueberroth, former baseball commissioner   

 

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Ask questions with an open mind   

An excellent way to learn and gather information is to ask questions with an open mind. When we consistently ask question with an open mine we become a learning magnet.   

A person that becomes a life long question asker builds a vast base of knowledge. That knowledge over time becomes a valuable resource of information to us to draw on. Based on our knowledge we become a recognized leader in our field.  

When we turn our information into knowledge we gain a competitive business advantage. When our knowledge is applied appropriately we move the into the possibility zone of greater opportunity.  

Ask questions with an open mind and we have asked ourself into the winners circle.

So, where did you get these insights Lou?  How long have you been a "purposeful question asker"?  What types of questions do you ask?  Can you elaborate? . . . . ;-)

I've done a lot of training in my lifetime.  I always explain to anyone I am training, "no question is every too dumb"... if you ask, that means you're doing something right.  :) Gail

Hi Lou:

I'm definitely not afraid to ask questions.

It's true, it's the best way to learn.

Lou, you are so right (as always).

Ask questions to get answers (and go three-deep when working with your clients..).

Lou,

We aren't born with any of the answers. We have to ask questions to learn. :)

Lou, it seems so obvious... but a mistake we often make... asking questions, but not really listening to the answers.
