Question Logging – Part Three

Stoicable July 10, 2022


Question Logging

Because we forget them.

Always think of your future self. This theme keeps coming up, and that’s because it’s often overlooked. You might understand the answer now, but will understand it months down the road when you’re asked about it during an examination or assessment?

Write the answers to your questions down. Don’t let these same questions return to haunt you.

Through curiosity.

Curiosity is at the foundation of any successful person. Curiosity is what drives us to look beyond ourselves. Curiosity leads to self-improvement, creating your own purpose, and appreciating the world’s hidden beauty.

Questioning is the oxygen that feeds this spark. The more you ask, the more you learn. The more you learn, the more you want to learn. This is why the gap in knowledge between those who embrace learning and those who don’t is so large. It’s a positive feedback loop.

When you engross your mind in learning, it gets a taste for it and begins craving more. We know this from the dozens of social science experiments that looked at these differences. It’s important to know that the studies controlled for socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. In other words, learning makes you want to keep learning.

The more unanswered questions we have, the weaker our learning foundation is. Too many unanswered questions and your learning foundation will struggle to support more challenging material.
