“Life is an unanswered question, but let’s still believe in the dignity and importance of the question.”
-Tennessee Williams

The questions are big right now…

and it’s important to keep asking them.

Sure, we can bemoan and kvetch our hardships — and, for sure, there are many — or we can pointedly begin the slow and steady clean-up efforts.

No, the storm is far from over, but we need not wait until the last tree falls to begin our personal and group rebuilding.

A great rule of thumb in the world of personal development is to only complain to someone who can do something about it. And, way better than complain — which carries negativity — coming up with powerful and forward-moving questions creates more solution-focused unity and hope.

As we continue to form a group conscience about when, where and how our collective lives come together again economically, we all have our particular interest in the equation.

What are your questions, and who do you need to ask your questions of?

As a matter of fact, if you could sit down with me, career and business coach, for a cup of coffee right now, what two things would you most want to ask or get guidance on?

In addition, if you could sit down for coffee with my human resources executive wife, what two things would you most want to ask her?

This is an opportunity to begin your rebuild.

I’m really serious. Go ahead and push the reply button now and tell me your questions.

We’re planning something to help you in your personal (and the collective) rebuild and really appreciate your input.

I won’t always be able to answer individually, but plan to answer in a future email…so stay tuned.

Need help in planning for your post-pandemic career, business or personal life? Schedule a session here. Crazy as it sounds, what if there’s actually forward movement possible for you out of all this? You likely won’t discern that on your own. I’m here to help you see what you don’t.

Got pointed and powerful questions?

“I never learn anything talking. I only learn things when I ask questions.”
-Lou Holtz
