I Always Ask Why...

Thursday, October 30, 2008

If you accept someone else's idea of reality and personal limits, you'll have no control over your own destiny. Do you normally accept things as they are, or do you ask "why" and "what if"? If we always stick to the familiar, the known, we never grow and learn. Don't be afraid to go against the grain. Ask the tough questions that everyone else is afraid to ask. Try a new way to do the same thing just to see what happens.

Every time I've started a new job and have been in the training period I've needed to ask why! When I'm told what to do, and how to do something I ask why because, to me, it makes it easier to do when I understand why.

I have done many jobs in my life and have always tried to find an easier way to do them. Not to get out of doing some work, but because I could then do more. It always seems like a waste of time doing 10 things instead of 5 to come to the same conclusion. But then I ask myself, why did I always like long division hahaha!

I am not a trailblazer by any means, but I will find MY way in the world and not someone else's. I think everyone should find what works for them and the easiest way to get there. Or at least the most fun emoticon

Today I hope everyone asks someone or even themselves why! Keep your mind open for new ideas and new ways of doing the same old thing!

Just remember the 3 year old, Why Mommy? Why? It gets aggravating sometimes but they certainly learn a lot if you actually tell them why!

    I always say, find your own truth. We have to go down our own path, choose wisely. Find your own truth and be true to yourself.

    I'm a 'why' lady, too.....and I passed it on to my kids. We all Google everything.

    And I stress with them that leading their own lives, instead of what they grew up with is important....especially in relationships where two people come together expecting their family to be what they grew up with....impossible. We have to make our own new families based on what we want now....and why we want it. The answer is not just 'cos we've always done it that way'!

    I could write a book on this one! Thanks for getting me thinking. :)
