Jason Fried writes about the Business innovator Clayton Christensen, “Christensen said one other thing that really stuck in my head writes Fried. It’s often said that someone can’t be taught until he or she is ready to learn. He put it differently: “Questions are places in your mind where answers fit,” he said. “If you haven’t asked the question, the answer has nowhere to go. It hits your mind and bounces right off.”

Fried continues, “Whoa, I thought. It’s like Velcro. The loop side of the Velcro can’t stick to itself; it needs the hook side to latch on to. Questions are hooks; answers are loops.”

I learned long ago that questions are never inappropriate... only not asking them if we don’t know the answer. Questions need answers. Answers need Questions.

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” Jesus
