My greatest strength as a consultant
Yet we seem to accept it as normal. We're apparently willing to live with it. We fail to seize the opportunity to ask these questions which could dispel it:
Why do we do it this way?
Why do we believe this to be true?
Why can't we change the rules?
Why must we do this at all?
These are the world wrecking questions. These are the queries that challenge, and can shatter, the Status Quo.
They're also the simple questions available to anyone (with enough courage) in every situation. They raise the specter that things need not be as we've accepted them.
Nor is the question 'Why?' beyond our scope. It's perhaps the only strength we share regardless of upbringing or social standing. From our first days of speech we ask 'Why?' … and at some point we stop. Why?
We're born with the urge to ask 'Why?', when we lose it, we begin to die.
