The question fork

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.

For example:

  • 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:

  1. If asking someone a question and they’re not able to answer it, ask an adjacent question
  2. 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.
