The five W’s of life. Who, What, When, Where, Why?

The five W's of life

Questions are the best way to gain deeper insights and develop more innovative solutions. In fact, it was often said that asking “WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHY, WHEN and HOW” was synonymous with gathering great data.

What people think of as the moment of discovery is really the discovery of the question.” – Jonas Salk

Asking lots of questions is particularly tricky whenever you’re dealing with clients who are busy people in leadership roles.

By asking each of these questions, you could better create a clear vision for personal growth, goal setting and timed framed achievements.

Questions both test your knowledge of the subject and forces you to look deep into your mind so you understand what you don’t understand.

Asking questions is the single most important habit for innovative thinkers,” – Paul Sloane

Just as the five W’s play a very important role in journalism, there’s also five W’s that can help guide you throughout life.

The five W’s of life:

WHO?

Who you are is what makes you special. Do not change for anyone.

Don’t ever change for someone who is not willing to change anything about them for you.
