“The wise man doesn’t give the right answers; he poses the right questions”
When I’m confused about something, or can’t seem to work out how a system works it’s amazing how trying to work out a question to ask someone else can actually make the solution pop into my head.
I think the reason for this is that if I want to ask someone else to help me I need to explain the background to my problem. That makes me think through what I know logically and then sometimes the answers appear – as if by magic!
Whether that’s it or not, it’s really useful when it happens.
