Today’s words of wisdom come from Naquib Mabius who is an author. Naquib says: “you can tell whether a man is clever by his answers. You can tell whether a man is wise by his questions.”
How many times do we feel so intimidated, by whatever – that we don’t even get to ask the question? The problem with this is that usually, someone has asked “Are there any questions?” and having asked the question and not received any replies, it is assumed that everyone is now happy and not confused! Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! All that that means is that someone was too scared, nervous, embarrassed etc to ask the question.
So then it comes to the performing of the task and very few get it right, because no-one asked the question and now they really do look like twits!
The moral of the story is quite clear – there is only one stupid question . . . and that is the one that you DO NOT ASK!
