I believe thinking is power.
I think about a wide range of things. Some annoying, some encouraging; some trivial, some meaningful. I believe people should never stop asking questions, but I don’t like to ask another person to solve it for me, instead, I prefer to solve them on my own. After all, your thinking process is the most important part. Questions are just the catalysts, motivating people to think more.
The most frequently appeared question is: what am I going to eat? This common question sometimes annoys me. I tell myself, “Hey! You should think about something bigger! Why waste time on this kind of question?” And then myself answer, “You can’t work or study like a machine! Food is fuel and it charges you with energy!” Then I’ll probably go to a restaurant with friends and have a great meal.
Well, if you think that is the end of the story, then you are wrong.
The next question is: Why people eat?
It appears that the desire for food is a part of physiological needs, which is at the bottom of the pyramid of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
If the basic needs cannot be satisfied, it will be hard for humans to survive. There is an anecdote about Newton. Newton was so absorbed in studies that he forgot whether he had eaten or not. However, can he survive without food for days? I don’t think so. For some people, the higher needs may suppress the lower needs for a time, but it cannot last forever. (Anorexia is a different story and I will not discuss it due to length limitations.)
As you can see, the question evolves. A negligible question generates a psychological question. By asking “why”, it’s easy to motivate anyone to discover the hidden knowledge behind plain events.
Ask questions from different angles. Have a brainstorm. Organize them. Don’t expect to get some useful questions just in one step. Some questions may never become meaningful ones.
I believe all people have questions. And I believe one questions can spark a series of questions. By asking questions and solving them, people can improve their skills of learning and thus becoming competent for more tasks.
(And BTW, what food can make us healthier is an important question too. If you are interested in this topic, please leave a comment to let me know.)
