This month saw the publication of my third book, Teaching that Changes Lives. When someone asked me what inspired this new book, I realized that it was the same core yearning to make a difference that inspired my first one, The Art of the Question. The very last section of the book is entitled “Let Us Inquire Together.” Now, 15 years later, it feels even more right than when I first wrote it! I’d love to share with you a few snippets from this writing:
I selected “Let us Inquire Together” as the overall theme for these blog articles because I passionately believe that inquiring together is what makes all our lives and relationships satisfying and successful. Inquiring together also means thinking together—and we all know that the best thinking leads to the best results. I believe that that’s what’s needed to have a world that really works for us all. A blog is one of the best ways to expand “us” and help build a community of like-minded and like-hearted folks.
Over time, I’ll be sharing stories, examples, and tips for being successful question-askers—as well as news, such as our upcoming trip to Malaysia, Singapore and China. Of course, there are many others who share this passion for inquiry and who have created wonderful work around it. I’ll share some of their writing, interview many of them and also invite some of them to be guest bloggers. I believe you will be enriched and stimulated by their thinking.
Our on-going conversation will be much richer through your comments and contributions and I enthusiastically invite you to join our learning community of inquirers. Here are four questions from The Art of the Question. Let us inquire together about them.
What are your thoughts and reflections about these questions? I would love to hear from you!
