It opens up my mind to the things that I over look and inspires my creativity..
Today I read about miscommunications and how then in doubt ask.
I can remember feeling so stupid and being told on more than one occasion that I was stupid because I asked questions. Until one day chatting with my youth director and apologizing for ask so many questions. He made this statement. "You don't need to apologize for asking any question ever. Why, Because there is no such thing as a dumb question. If you don't understand and don't ask the questions so you can understand, well, that is what makes for a stupid person.."
I have never forgotten his words... And even to this day, I smile then someone calls me stupid for asking question, since I know that the stupid one is them for not wanting to answer the questions.
So, if someone smiles at you after you have answered a question it probably that you didn't really answer the question and you actions have made you look stupid...
As one comic would tell you, "Here's your sign."
