I was visiting with a “data guy” recently who described his IT sales job as ‘asking the next questions.’ It reminded me that we all need to do that every day.
At work or really in life, it’s smart to always be asking the next question. “Why are we doing this?” “What happens if this works?” “And then what will we do next?”
It’s never too late to change direction, so make sure the answers to the questions are authentic and honest. You’ll save yourself a lot of time and heartache by being true to yourself and your organization and by being decisive and confident.
