I spend a good portion of my day asking questions. For me, questions stimulate thoughts and spark ideas. This morning I looked aside at my post-it riddled desk and a small note caught my eye. The note contained the phrase ask how, not if. That is all. I had forgotten about some past discussions Aki and I had; from which emerged the vocalization of this important statement. In asking how, we begin the process of looking for the solution. In asking if, there already exists doubt; not a very good first step in the execution and pursuit of ideas. Also, in asking how we begin to challenge ourselves in our daily actions. The ability to be continuously challenged enables us to overcome obstacles, push internal limits and expand our own knowledge base. What is even more useful is that we are able to ask each other these questions--further pushing our boundaries and achievements. Tomorrow we will make hot chocolate gnocchi.
