Questions excite me

Someone tried to pay me a compliment (publicly) last night and I did what I always do - I shrugged and ducked. I said, "I just ask questions and then folks credit me with the answers; it's a neat trick."

As I walked up to the streetcar an hour later, I had a small epiphany. It is all about the questions.

Questions excite me - challenge me - inspire me. Questions are the journey.

Don't get me wrong - there are answers out there too (some of them even good!). But you don't know they're good unless you've been asking - and trying - other variations.

Ask. Listen. Try. Ask some more.
