It’s tempting to focus on finding answers to our current questions, rather than setting off to find a better question.
Holding onto a question that doesn’t yet have an answer can be a difficult, vulnerable, and uncomfortable thing to do. It is for this reason that we can be prone to disregard difficult, troubling questions. But progress is driven not by simply finding answers to questions, but by finding answers to the right questions.
The first ‘right question’ to consider could be, “What are the right questions?”
As you go, consider that ‘right questions’ are often different questions and have a go at prioritizing the discovery of better questions over the search for answers.
