There is usually more than one way to ask the same thing.
Enter: the question fork.
Three different questions all pointing in the same direction.
- What do you want?
- What do you care about?
- What’s important to you?
One of these will feel easier to answer than others and all are asking a similar thing.
Knowing this, there are two prompts:
- If asking someone a question and they’re not able to answer it, ask an adjacent question
- If prompting yourself with a question and you’re feeling stuck, seek an adjacent question
That’s it. A little cutlery related noodle for your Wednesday.
