Are you asking the right questions?

Our minds are filled with questions. It’s the way we were programmed and it is how we think. Some questions are easy to answer and some are not. Some questions support us and some harm our lives.

In school, we learn to give the right answers. But in truth, questions asked are more important than the answers themselves. As Georg Cantor said:

“To ask the right question is harder than to answer it” – Georg Cantor

When you start to think of the questions in your head, you realise just how many questions run through your mind every day. It’s easy to see then why sometimes you are in a good state, and sometimes in a bad state.
