Don’t Just Try Harder… Try Smarter!

Sometimes trying harder at a task is not a formula for success. Those are the times a smarter solution is needed. And if you can’t come up with a smarter solution on your own, asking the right people the right questions can help you get the solution you need for your problem.

Asking questions is not a sign of weakness. It’s sign of “humbition” – a subtle blend of humility and ambition. It’s also a sign of intelligence. Smart people learn as much as they can from others. They realize they can shorten their own learning curves by gleaning what others have already learned.

Here are 4 quick tips to help you use questions to your benefit…

  1. Ask lots of questions of those who have more experience, knowledge, expertise, etc.
  2. Ask yourself hard questions to extract key learnings from your own past good and bad experiences
  3. Ask for opinions before you make critical decisions
  4. Ask for help

You don’t have to experience the school of hard knocks in order to learn from the school of hard knocks!

What are some of the questions you ask when you’re trying to learn from others?
