“A More Beautiful Question”

Attending a session of This Human Moment last week, I was reminded of two favorite ways of approaching the unknown, uncertain, and uncomfortable.

One is the “beautiful question” format of How might I/we … ? To see the power and beauty of this question, consider the difference between these questions: Can we order in from our favorite restaurant tonight? vs. How might we make this evening special? [More here.]

The other is the Can-if … framework: Can we meet up this afternoon? We can if we agree to remain at least six feet apart from one another.

The old frames are breaking … how might we make that a beautiful invitation?
