This question is one of my new favorites. People almost never ask themselves this question and they’re almost always surprised when someone else asks them. They stop in their tracks, look confused for a second while they shift gears, then start thinking of all kinds of people and resources they didn’t realize they had. It doesn’t seem to make much difference what the subject area or context is… people always come up with solutions they hadn’t thought of before. Variations on this question include: “Who can help you stay on track?” and “What resources do you already have?” Try asking someone this week.
