If I were to ask you what the best question is, what would you say? Of course it depends on the information you're looking for, but are there any questions that are more useful to growth, learning, or growing?
Think of the W questions... and H question (Who, What, Why, Where, When, How)
In this episode, Jesse explores what the he feels is the best question and the reason for it being the best question.
SPOILER ALERT: It's "why" followed by "how".
This is the question that's fundamental to learning. If you want to know the reason somebody did something, you ask 'why'? If somebody says something hurtful, you want to know why. If you want to make good decisions or understand the reason you've made a bad decision, you ask yourself 'why?'
Why is fundamental to learning. Followed closely by "how". In fact, these question compliment each other perfectly. First, you ask 'why', and then you can ask 'how', as in, "How can I + verb"
