NEVER ASK WHY
Never ask why. There is no dependable answer. One must settle for an invented explanation which immediately ends the opportunity to learn anything that begins with this very misleading word.
Ask what. The result can with practice, become an endless flow of information; what happens when I…?
what do I desire? what are my intentions? what shall I research next?
Or when; when is not as productive as what and far less objective since it deals with time. But , it can be useful in writing memoirs or planning for future intentions and possible alternatives.
And then there is where: now where did I place that last idea?
