Questions, not answers, are the seeds of success. Someone focused on answers says, "This is the way." Someone focused on questions asks, "Is there a better way?" Questions force you to explore - to stretch, to learn, to grow, and to be creative. Answers let your mind go to sleep. You get lazy when you think you've found the answer. You haven't. And you never will because things always change. To stay vibrant and relevant, keep living the questions.
As a DI, it is imperative that you live in and with the questions
that capture your imagination. Your questions are precious gifts
to the cause of innovation. From the well-considered question can
emerge extraordinary insight and enormous opportunity, even when there
are no definitive answers. Organizations tend to prefer answers,
of course, so you must be steadfast in asking questions in the presence
of your colleagues and even your bosses to make sure they don't end
valuable inquiry prematurely. In those difficult moments, try to remember Doug's words.
