Some of the questions we pose when coaching seem almost impossible to answer. And often, our initial reaction is to throw our hands up in despair and cry: ‘I have no idea!’
But, here is the thing about ‘unanswerable’ questions — they are designed to get you to think.
It sounds so simple, right? Unfortunately, our world is shaped for better, simpler, faster (to steal some ad copy ;-)
And that means that we have trained our brains to find the shortest way through, at all times. That requires no deep thinking. That actually demands that we not think, that we act, that we react.
How is this kind of non-thinking, reactive life serving you?
