Why The Questions You Ask At Work Matter | Your Badass Career

“THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A STUPID QUESTION, HOWEVER, THERE ARE LAZY QUESTIONS.”

- Lauren Evans, Badass Coach

If you truly don't understand or need some information, no, there is no such thing as a stupid question.

You can, however, ask a lazy question. A lazy question is when you ask because it is the fastest way to get information, but not necessarily the best.

One way you can challenge yourself is to ask yourself, can you take 2 or 3 steps to try and get the information you need? Searching is your best friend, by the way. If you can get it in 2 or 3 steps and you're not trying to take any of them. You may be asking a lazy question.

Don't get me wrong! I don't want you to be afraid to ask questions or challenge ideas - we need this in the world. I'm encouraging you to challenge yourself by asking yourself "can I try taking some steps first to get this information?"
