Stephen Aitchison assumes that he knows the secret parts of the right question. He created a list of 30 questions, which, in his opinion, every person should ask himself.
I’ve shortened the list of questions a little. Initially it consisted of 34 items. So if you are interested in the full version – check the blog for the author. I do not know why it is 34, but Steven leaves space for the creativity of his readers and proposes to supplement the list he compiled.
5 components of the right question
- He must strive for the result.
- It should be simple and clear.
- It must open up new opportunities.
- It should make you think.
- It must give impetus to action.
