Why you should ask more questions

Asking questions is important.

Why is asking questions important?

Questions force you to think about a topic in terms of what you don’t know. Rather than reading a text or a highlighted passage, and thinking “I got this”, questions force you to search deeper for something else: the unknown.

Why do questions force you to think about what you don’t know?

We are curious people. We like to know the answer to questions. When we ask questions, there’s a natural desire to find and answer to those questions.

When you write questions down about a topic you are learning, you are forcing yourself to read and interpret information from the perspective of finding out what you don’t know.

How can you ask more questions?

Just write down more questions every day. Write down your to do list in the form of questions. Ask yourself, what am I going to get done today? What needs to be worked on first? What are those most important items on my to do list?

Write down questions about a topic you want to learn. Start by writing questions that you want to know the answer to. When you have answers that you are seeking, learning becomes easier.

Writing questions gives your mind something to search for. If you go into a topic with a bunch of questions, personalized to you, you will learn a subject much faster.

I guarantee it.
