Each year in March we have Happiness Day. It makes me wonder – why just one day? I have met a number of wonderful individuals who seem to have decided that they are going to have a happiness life, not just a day.

Why do we have whys? What’s behind our driving passion? What’s behind our reason to exist? Do we need a reason to exist? Is existing enough of a reason? What do we get from having a driving reason? Why might a driving reason be essential for a happy, healthy life? What if that’s not true?

This is an article by Warren Berger, author of the new book “A More Beautiful Question”. This excerpt was posted in the Harvard Business Review in September 2012. I believe that getting to the right question is prerequisite for growing conversations.

Perhaps if we looked for better questions we’d get better answers. Our job as leaders is to ask better questions that question our answers.
