Take the biggest problem you are dealing with right now, and instead of trying solve it willy-nilly, force it through the question gauntlet below. By asking questions instead being frustrated, questions provide an opportunity to gain clarity and they help to identify solutions and action steps fast.
Remember also that questions will help to keep your emotions between the lines.
Identifying the problem:
What seems to be the trouble?
How do I feel about _____________?
What concerns me the most about _____________?
What seems to be my main obstacle? ___________
What is holding me back from _________________?
How do I want ____________ to turn out?
What do I want?
What is my desired outcome?
What benefits would I like to get out of X?
What do I propose?
What is my plan?
Then say the magical four words at least 10 times today: What do you think?
Make it a great day! Mike
