Right Questions v Easy Questions
When faced with a dilemma, we often use *easy* questions, rather than right questions, as mental crutches to talk ourselves out of something.
For example, rather than asking, "How can I back up my position better," or "how can I make a more compelling case," we ask, "What if I'm wrong?", or "What if others think I'm stupid?"
Well, of course -- those are easier questions to answer! But are they the *right* questions to answer?
Push back against the temptation to ask the easy questions. Focus on asking the right questions; they're much harder to answer, but they're actually relevant and therefore more likely to illuminate your path.
