How to Save the World
The quality of a question is not judged by its complexity but by the complexity of thinking it provokes. – Joseph O’Connor
Goal #1 for 2019 – Create a book that will get anyone thinking.
When I started my business last year, I wanted people to love to speak. I also knew that parents wanted their children to communicate more. If I could get that happening at the dinner table or in the car on a trip somewhere then that would be a good thing. In the process the children would learn more about their parents and wider family because they would have to play the game as well. A by product of all this talking is that those who participate become more confident, conversational and in some cases talk about vulnerable issues we face as well as things we aspire to do or be.
I also knew the solution needed to eliminate the process of what to talk about and so began the quest to create questions. Questions came from family, friends, colleagues, toastmasters and even the ladies at Summerset Rest home.
What shall I call it? I was in the sunroom of our house one day having a chat about life with my brother-in-law. It did involve some amber ale. When we emerged from the room the ladies asked, ‘what have you two been doing?’ – ‘We have been saving the world’ was our reply. In other words, we were two men talking about our problems real, imaginary and everything else in the process.
I knew I had the title to the book – How to Save to World – one question at a time is now available via my website. Click here to order your copy.
What can I say – this book may change your life! How to Save the World one question at a time is the essential book of questions for all ages. 1408 questions, broken in 17 chapters with thought provoking questions that get you thinking.
Questions are great conversation starters. They invite you to open your mind and reveal thoughts, feelings and experiences in life on a wide variety of subjects.
Try it out in business and social settings such as:
· Holidays with family and friends – a stimulating alternative to playing cards or board games.
· In the car during long journeys – this is a great way to make the trip seem much shorter.
· Around the meal table – an opportunity for young and old to talk and practice speaking in front of people.
· Discussion groups – ideal as an icebreaker at workshops or as an interlude in business meetings to help team members get to know each other.
· Students that want an activity on school camp.
