In the past, I would get so excited about opportunities; agree and trust blindly. This felt great for a few weeks, maybe even months, then I would find out it wasn’t a long term decision I had agreed, it was more of a short term decision. Short term feels good until you look underneath the iceberg and see what details lurk.
The Trouble With Not Asking Questions
By not asking questions, I found that I had overcommitted and ended up letting others down or was just scrambling to meet deadlines. In turn, I was also being let down because by not asking questions, I left room for uncertainty of expectations. Yet, when I started asking questions, then second and third level questions, getting underneath the iceberg I felt better balanced and more successful! By asking questions, we learn, by learning, we increase neuroplasticity in our brain.
What is Neuroplasticity?
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections. In turn, this will help mitigate the risk of Alzheimer’s and other diseases. Today, I pause and ask good questions that will give me greater insight and control. I found that by asking questions, I build stronger intrapersonal connections, I have the ability to see a much bigger picture and it also puts me in the driver seat and gives me the feeling of control.
There is no dumb question…So ask it!!
