CANYON QUESTIONING BY CODY COWGILL
How deep do your questions go?
Questioning is a powerful creative tool. It gets the mind going; shifts it up a gear.
I have just recently taken it upon myself to question and challenge more things. Up to this point, I have found that I easily accept things as they are and do not think too much more about them. Too many people make this a habit because it is easy to do.
Questioning is not a hard practice to pick up. I have dedicated a whole journal strictly for questions. Anything that I challenge throughout the day, I write it in there. I even have daily reminders that tell me to take time to do so.
It is easy to ask surface questions, the ones where your thoughts do not go far beyond the question mark itself. The best results come when you build and struggle with the same topic. This is where discovery happens. We think about things in a way that we never have before. When I am forced to dig, ideas start to flow and the creativity begins.
Surface questions are a good starting point, but go deeper. Challenge things and yourself. Ask the Canyon Questions.
