"I wonder if we’re all cheating each other by not asking big-enough questions—or at least the questions that get us on the route to the bigger questions. I want to get better at asking those big-enough questions.

I want to grow in this area because it seems like asking good questions and patiently listening to their answers could help me be a better friend, a better mentor, a better manager, and a better leader."
