YOUR QUESTION DEFINES YOUR QUEST
Questions have the power to guide you on your path of curiosity and discovery. They ground your search for purpose and drive you onwards when all seems futile.
What would it be like to wear your question on your sleeve, asking it of everyone you met and sharing about how far you've come in seeking answers?
Consider the following questions and the people who asked them.
"He was particularly obsessed by the orbit of the Moon around the Earth, and eventually reasoned that the influence of gravity must extend over vast distances. After seeing how apples always fall straight to the ground, he spent several years working on the mathematics showing that the force of gravity decreased as the inverse square of the distance."
His question led to the theory of gravity, mechanics, steam engines, and the First Industrial Revolution.
"To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savour the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world."
Although he became bankrupt several times in his career, his question led him to create a themed park for children and adults alike - Disneyland.
"Einstein’s first great thought experiment came when he was about 16. He had run away from his school in Germany...and enrolled in a Swiss village school based on the educational philosophy of Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, who believed in encouraging students to visualize concepts. While there, Einstein tried to picture what it would be like to travel so fast that you caught up with a light beam. If he rode alongside it, he later wrote, 'I should observe such a beam of light as an electromagnetic field at rest.' In other words, the wave would seem stationary..."
Through imagination, his question led to the general theory of relativity and forever changed the way we understand space and time.
A QUESTION TO YOUR NAME
Unlike mission statements, questions reveal another dimension about a person.
When you add a question to your name, your card transforms into an opportunity. You set the agenda by starting a meaningful conversation about something that's personally and professionally important to you.
This is mine.
Through a guided reflection, we'll sit and talk with you to explore the questions that keep recurring in your life. From this exercise, we'll discern the one question that sums up the essence of who you are and what you seek to do or find out.
We'll incorporate your question, corporate logos and colours, and contact details into a name card that can turn business discussions into meaningful conversations.
