Why do did you do what you did last weekend?
If you won a million, or twenty, what kind of work would you do? Can you do some of that now?
Why not be happy, thrilled, engaged, today? Really, is there any reason not to?
What could you do that would catch someone by surprise (in a good way)?
Why won’t you share that really great idea you have right now?
Who do you really admire? Why don’t you write them and email today?
Why is work so hard? Is it really?
How should people approach you? Are your verbal and nonverbal signals saying this or something else?
Why can Tom Peters charge so much? For what could you charge top dollar?
When was the last time you took a chance?
Who do you want to be know as? How can you be him or her today?
When is tomorrow going to come? Why not today?
What if you said, “no?” What if you said, “absolutely?”
What is your assumption? What if you are totally wrong?
Perhaps one of these questions will resonate with you. Take a few minutes today to ponder the present. Ponder, ponder, ponder. Do this with yourself and with others. Try spending an entire day asking questions and making no statements. Let’s make October 20, 2004 International Socratic Questioning Day. Here’s a post I did a while back on Socrates.
