Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? Ask questions. Lots of them.

Why? Because that's how you learn. And if you want to grow as a person, you have to keep learning.

Think about it. Is it possible to get better at anything without learning something new? No. Learning is the essence of growth.

If learning is the essence of growth, we need to be intentional about it. Don't let your days pass by without thinking about them. Take time to reflect on what happens each day and find something you can learn from it. John Maxwell wrote in his book The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth that "Experience is not the greatest teacher. Evaluated experience is." Unless you take time to question and learn from your experiences, you will go on living the same as before. You can never learn from experiences unless you take the time to think about them.

And not only do we need to evaluate experiences we have, but we need to learn from others' experiences as well. Learning from mistakes is a great thing, but I would much rather learn before them. This is why it is essential to learn from others. This and the fact that you are only one person. You can only have so many experiences. They have information that you would never have access to if you never took the time to learn it from them.

Ask questions, learn, be curious. It's the only way to grow.

Curiosity may have killed the cat, but I'd rather die learning than live in stupidity.
