In his book A More Beautiful Question, Warren Berger posits that solving problems starts with asking beautiful questions as defined here:
“A beautiful question is an ambitious yet actionable question that can begin to shift the way we perceive or think about something — and that might serve as a catalyst to bring about change.”
A beautiful question that will help you better understand current and past realities is “why?”
A perhaps more beautiful question that potentiates new possibilities is “why not?”
As you go into the rest of your day, consider that there may be an even more beautiful question still that gets to the essence of the people you aim to serve and the problems you aim to solve that, when you discover and ask it, will lead you on a path that makes all the difference.
