I’m excited to share a very simple yet profound idea: the magic of a second question. As adults, we ask about 95% fewer questions than we did as children, leading to a significant decline in our curiosity. However, considering that most of us know less than 1% of all there is to know, our curiosity should remain high, given the abundance of unknowns still out there.

This idea is especially relevant in interactions and conversations. Often, we might ask a basic question like “Where are you from?” or “What do you do?”. But typically, after that initial question, we fall into a pattern of making statements, like a ping pong match of sentences ending with periods. This is where the magic of the second question comes in.

How To Double Your Initial Question Count

By simply doubling your question count from one to two, you can significantly improve your conversations. Ask your initial question, then listen intently, aiming to ask a follow-up question based on your curiosity. This approach will greatly enhance the quality of your interactions.

How To Make Connections Easier

The magic of the second question is a small but powerful tool to make your connections at home and work easier and more meaningful. If you’re interested in more cool stuff like this, check the links in the description to learn more.

Have an awesome day, and remember, a little curiosity can go a long way in building better connections!
