The best questions beg an answer, spark innovation, diffuse negative conflict, and build influence.

How many directions do you go in at once?

Trick question, I know you go in many directions a day, can you be present with just one direction at a time? In my aikido practice we have a sword exercise, 8 directions. The practice is to be steady, focused and present with each direction, one at a time. As your technique improves, you can then speed up, maintain quality and move from thing to thing quickly.

Often those who think they can slice well (connect, perform) in multiple directions at once is fooling themselves.
