“Advances are made by answering questions. Discoveries are made by questioning answers.”
– Bernard Haisch
Hmm. Read that again. Let it sink in. Think about it. Questioning the answers doesn’t have to be left to someone else. You can ask those questions. Come on, try! What might you discover if you did?
And Your Business?
How much of your business do you accept simply because it’s the status quo? Simply because that’s how it’s done. Simply because that’s how you’ve always done it.
What could your business become if you began to question the answers? If you questioned the answers, the way things are done, what possibilities might you discover?
There was a time when everyone knew the answer to how long it took to run a mile. Roger Bannister questioned that answer. On May 6, 1954, in Oxford England, Roger Bannister at the age of 25 gave us a new answer to how long it took to run a mile. The new answer, a mile could be run in less than four minutes.
The accepted answers aren’t always correct.
Soon numerous people believed his new answer and ran miles in less than four minutes. What belief might be holding you back, that isn’t real.
How About You?
What might you learn if you questioned the current answers that you have excepted?
