Just an fyi….if you are in a reflective mood.

Do People Ask Themselves the Right Questions?

Maxwell

“People often ask themselves the right questions. Where they fail is in answering the questions they ask themselves, and even there they do not fail by much…But it takes time, it takes humility and a serious reason for searching.”

— William Maxwell, Time Will Darken It

Agree, disagree?

I think it’s often very hard to think searchingly about questions that we know we should face, but don’t want to face.

Mike’s response:

I think that’s why it’s helpful to involve someone who is not so “subject” to our questions.

I know we ask a lot of questions to ourselves, most rhetorical however;)

What most of us @BS don’t have is the information we need from developmental models to know if questions are “right” for us, rather than questions that BS wants us to answer.

Until we really know what we “need”…BS wants us to keep our sights set on what we want…and as long as we can’t distinguish the difference, BS has us right where our ego wants us;)

A lot of the questions that are relevant @F-L-O-W are subjects of talking points we have setup, as a guide.
