115: The Questions You Ask Can Change Your Life

The Questions You Ask Can Change Your Life

This episode is a direct follow on to last week’s episode on asking great market discovery questions.

Last week Craig Davis left a comment on a LinkedIn post that I really liked, and it ties directly into last week’s episode on questions. He mentioned a course from Joshua Miller called “Using Questions to Foster Critical Thinking and Curiosity.”

And so that’s where this episode takes off.

Craig said asking good questions has four benefits (among others):

  • Helps you foster critical thinking skills
  • Boosts self-confidence.
  • Enhances creativity.
  • Improves problem solving skills.


My short list of solution discovery questions

  • How do other people solve this problem? Are other apps solving similar problems to this one, and can we copy or emulate what they do?
  • Can we simply automate the current manual solution to this problem? Or do our automation tools give us another way to approach the solution?
  • If we could wave a magic wand, how would we solve this, if there were no technical limits, for example?
