I’ve always prided myself on asking good questions.

If I had to guess, I would attribute this to my natural curiosity and drive to understand others.

This is probably one of the reasons I recently took a consulting job with Slalom.

At the end of the day, a good consultant has the ability learn about their client and their client’s problems and needs by asking good questions.

A good question isn’t hard simply for the sake of stumping others.

It does one thing above all else: it forces the person answering to think differently.

Here is a list of good questions I’ve been pondering recently:

• What does my future look like in five years?
• What is one action I can take today to live a more intentional life?
• When was the last time I applied critical thinking to my life?
• What are my core values and how am I living them day-to-day?
• What does success mean to me today? Tomorrow? A year from now?
• Why do I still practice unhealthy habits? How can I reprogram them?
• If I had an ∞ in my bank account, what would I do differently? The same?
• How can I help others with my unique skills and abilities?
• How can I make the world a little smaller?
