CREATIVE QUESTIONNAIRE: The Processional Effect of Questions

Writing in his wonderful book, 'Brain Symphony: Brain-blazing Practical Techniques in Creativity for Immediate Application', Dilip Mukerjea asks readers to reflect on the following questions & decide whether you are en route to a black hole of oblivion . . . or ???

1) Since you already know that the pace of change is accelerating, what are you doing about it?

2) If the effect of change is that corporations are disappearing, what guarantees do you have about lifetime employment in your present position?

3) If you knew that your job was to evaporate in a year, what should you be doing now that you have not yet started doing?

4) Since you already know that discovery and invention, creativity and innovation, are the new demands of society, what are you doing to not make yourself obsolete?

5) If you are one of those whose memory is declining with age, and you believe this is natural, what will you do to reverse this belief?

Say Keng's personal comments:

I am confident that, in your deliberation of those pertinent questions, you will be able to find many answers, which will eventually lead you to set off new directions.

Meanwhile, I like to take this opportunity to share a wise quote from internationally acclaimed peak performance & success coach Anthony Robbins, writing in his book, 'Awaken the Giant Within':

"Questions set off a processional effect that has an impact beyond our imagination. Questioning our limitations is what tears down the walls in life - in business, in relationships, between countries. I believe human progress is preceded by new questions."
