When someone asks an unexpected question, how do you respond?
Stuck between the discomfort of an unanswered question and the confusion of an uncertain answer, we often try to leap towards the first convenient answer.
But convenience is different from the truth.
Taking a pause and sitting with the discomfort is our best chance to learn something new. Rather than seeing the question as an inconvenience, think of it as an opportunity to look deeper.
Don’t let the desire to find a quick answer stop you from finding the right one.
