The Monday Morning WHIP // 39

When unrelated links form in your mind that offer no immediately perceived answer, you gotta ask questions (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Question). There are many forms a question can take, ie: Rhetorical, Descriptive, Causal, Relational, Dichotomous, Nominal, Annoying, Frustrating and Off-Topic, just to name a few. Remember! There are no silly questions, only annoying ones. Always have a purpose that is selfless and constructive, otherwise those in the immediate area are allowed to whisper behind your back. In an aside, always be a courteous listener. No one likes annoying whisperers either. So if you see Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com/) on the street, become smarter and ask him a million questions – just not annoying ones.

Big thank you to everyone who came along to the Junior Event last Wednesday (http://lifeatthebottom NULL.com/2009/08/14/junior-event-09/). Great to see so many people scribbling away furiously in their notebooks (http://notemaker NULL.com NULL.au/collections/rhodia-boutique-collection-at-notemaker-australia) during my rambling talk.
Only one problem – No questions!
This may well be the fault of the Junior team, who had me drawing names out of a bucket before I could even catch my breath.
But…
If you make the effort to come along to hear someone give a talk, don’t be afraid to shout out a question at the end.
It’s about taking the initiative.
I always say to the people I work with not to invite me to meetings if they are in a hurry, because I always ask questions. And lots of them. That’s what creative people do.
QED – Question everything done.
So next time you attend a Junior Event, stick your hand up at the end and ask a question.
Because if there’s something you want to know, you’ll never know if you don’t ask.
