It Starts Within


Questions are places in your mind where answers fit. If you haven’t asked the question, the answer has nowhere to go.

It hits your mind and bounces right off.

You have to ask the question — you have to want to know — in order to open up the space for the answer to fit.

Clayton M. Christensen

Curiosity is the thing that drives us forward—oftentimes it’s the very thing that keeps me not just interested but also motivated.

I’ve come to realize that the people who know how to ask good questions are the ones who ultimately end up growing the fastest. And, folks who know how to ask themselves penetrating questions (and who don’t flinch when they confront reality) are the ones who understand that real, authentic, and sustainable change starts within.

I liked Mr. Christensen and I learned quite a bit from many of the folks who were inspired by him more directly; it seems that most of the folks that I admire these days once called Clayton a mentor and coach.
