In their book, The Laws of Lifetime Growth, Dan Sullivan and Catherine Nomura outline ten laws that dramatically shape personal growth. One of those laws states: Always Make Your Questions Bigger Than Your Answers. Sullivan and Nomura write:
Questions are essential for lifetime growth. As children, when we’re all growing at a rapid rate, we ask lots of questions. As we get older, we gradually begin to think we have a lot of the answers. For some people, their entire sense of security and self-image depends on having all the answers–on never being wrong. As a result, these people try to understand everything in terms of what they know. But all growth lies in the territory of the unknown. What we already know is in the past. What we have yet to discover is the future. Always make your questions bigger than your answers, and you’ll keep drawing yourself into a bigger future with new possibilities.
Pretty straight forward! Are you venturing into the unknown? Are your questions bigger than your answers?
