What is going on?

This is a great question to ask in place of “How are you?”
From the book Humble Inquiry, we are culturally programmed to answer “How are you?” with, “Fine.”
This tells us nothing about the person.

Instead experiment and replace “How are you?” with “What is going on?”
My bet is you will get a much more interesting and informative response.

Let me know how it goes!
