There is a simple and easy way to discover creative inspiration almost every day.
It’s a technique that creative thinkers have used for hundreds of thousands of years, and it works so well that doing it has changed nations, fueled entire revolutions, and will continue to inspire and motivate the world forever.
What is this big method of discovering inspiration?
Simply asking: “Why?”
Really, that’s all there is to it. Asking “Why?” is one of the most powerful ways to inspire your creativity and get you thinking.
Taiichi Ohno was a man who helped bring the Toyota motor corporation up to new standards in the 1950s. Ohno believed that exploring the world around us by asking “Why?” was such a powerful tool, he made it a traditional part of the service provided by Toyota.
Ohno must have been onto something, because studies have helped show how asking “Why?” can help you think abstractly and achieve goals.
Asking “Why?” is all you need to feel inspired. Start asking why you do what you do, or why you do it the way you do it. Ask yourself why someone else does a certain thing or why society believes in specific values. And do it today…
Starting right now: ask “Why?” more often.
