I have always been fascinated by the power of questions and its potential to bring about radical change. Almost every problem that we face are opportunities in disguise. But how do we get to know the opportunity and find a solution to the problem? The answer is we need to think creatively. How to provoke creative thinking? Though there numerous ways for this utilizing the power of questions is one definite way.
In fact to quote Albert Einstein:
"The significant problems we face cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them"
Again, questions can help us to change our perspective to a new level of thinking. There are different questions: Why, How, What, When, Who? Out of these questions "Why?" is the most powerful because when you ask "Why" question it puts us in a position that questions conventional wisdom.
