Asking WHY Is Sexier Than You Think
Why do we have different skin colors?
Why do we have diverse cultures and religions?
Why do we eat?
Why is 1+1 = 2? Why not 11?
Why can't men be pregnant?
Why is this our policy?
Why are we treating people differently?
Why did you change your mind?
Why did you say no?
Why does it work this way?
"Why" is the most important question, not asked nearly enough.
And It is a pity that the society we live in, school, our culture, our religion has made "why" look so ugly that we are too scared to embrace it.
Asking "why" doesn't mean we will get the answer we desire immediately but it brings out the creativity in us, It helps us see differently, it helps us tap into our uniqueness, it helps us to make a positive difference in the world we live.
There are so many things wrong with the status-quo. We need to challenge it by asking "why" again and then again.
Everyone out there creating work that matters asked the question "why".
If we keep asking why all the way to the beginning of the thread, we might come to understand how it is that this is the way we do things around here. And then realize that we might come out ahead if we care enough to change it.
