Answering Questions with Questions

Answering Questions with Questions

The novelist is not someone who answers questions but someone who asks them. ~Haruki Murakami As a coach, I don’t like to provide answers…directly. My preference is to ask questions akimbo to existing beliefs forcing thought out of parallel opening the brain to incongruence. Then, in the ensuing back and forth possibilities gadabout until a […]

The Fundamental Attribution Error

The Fundamental Attribution Error

Look deep enough into any person and you will find something shining within. ~Haruki Murakami We judge others by their actions while judging ourselves by our intent.

Isolation from others was a leitmotif that ran through his entire life. ~Haruki Murakami There are times looking back upon my life I see evidence of a patzer moving me from square to square trying desperately to not lose, seeking a draw while stumbling and staying in the match. The move sending me to India […]
