What To Do When Your Questions Have Questions

Are you familiar with the Four Tendencies?

No? Head over here and take the quick quiz – I’ll wait.

One of the tendencies is a Questioner.

If you aren’t familiar with Gretchen Rubin’s work on tendencies, you can probably guess that Questioners ask A LOT of questions.

Even if you don’t test as a Questioner, I’m sure you’ve experienced a time in your life where your questions started to rule everything.

Instead of answers, the questions just lead to more questions.

Maddening, right?

Like we talked about before, we can’t always have perfect information.

We can’t always know the answer to every question.

It’s easy to become a tornado, a vortex of spin and swirl, in the hunt for answers.

When we do that, we ultimately get in our own way.

The quickest way out is to pause, acknowledge what’s going on, and then take the next action you see in front of you.

Even if we aren’t sure of where it will exactly lead us.

You can’t think your way out this time.

The clarity you’re seeking can only be found in action.
