In Others’ Words: Questions
“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” ~Dr. Suess, American writer
I call my friend Doug “Wise Guy.” He offers me counsel that often cuts through my “why can’t I figure this out” questions with profoundly simple answers.
I clutter the truth with too many “what ifs.” He sifts through my many questions–sometimes I think he ignores most of them–and lasers in on truth. Reality. Not the maybes. Not the could bes. Not the might have beens or should haves.
Dr. Seuss had it right. It’s not the answers that trip us up. It’s the made-this-more-complicated-than-it-needed-to-be questions.
In Your Words: Have you ever realized you made the question harder than it needed to be? What, or who, helped you simplify your search and find what you were looking for?
