“I want to make my learning cycle faster by asking better questions.”
— Penelope Trunk, The reason therapy doesn’t work
What if we stopped asking “what’s wrong with this painting” and asked other, better questions?
What might be a better question? The one after “what do I like best?”.
Perhaps “what is most interesting?” (whether mark making, a happy accident, something inadvertent, a lost or found edge).
And regularly try “what if I …” to be motivated by curiosity rather than outcome or result.
What would your “better question” be? Do post a comment on my blog and let me know.
