Do you ask big questions?


During an online conversation about personal development and how to improve performance I asked a Master Mindpower Coach how I could improve my performance.  Their reply was:

  • Ask bigger questions

This was both helpful & unhelpful at the same time, my response was:

  • What is a bigger question?

Their response was typical of a coach:

  • What do you think would be a bigger question?

My relationship with asking big questions began.

I don’t have a definitive definition of what makes a big question, it may show up differently for you, but I suggest it could be:

  • A question that encourages you to reflect and contribute your prior knowledge and experience to a conversation with either yourself or others while being open for transformation to occur.

Perhaps a big question could be:

  • A question that broadens your awareness and helps you stay intentionally focused.

Perhaps a big question could be:

  • A question that asks you to forget about everything you know so that you are able to create something different.

Whatever you believe makes up a big question, my question to you is:

  • Do you ask big questions?

You may find big questions useful.


To become clear on your definition of a big question then explore your own big questions.


Change nothing if this is something you already do or not interested in.
