The asking 44 questions personal trial ...
You have to train and practice regularly to improve your ideas fitness, as mentioned in my 01-Sep-17 post about the Rock Your Recruiting workshop. Whenever you have some idle time, ask yourself 44 questions about any topic that comes to your mind. For my personal trial today, I will just combine an interesting article that gets shared a lot in the moment and take THE statement out of it, to phrase my questions.
The following article: "In Just 8 Words, Uber's New CEO Gave a Master Class in Leadership. The former Expedia CEO's parting letter to employees bodes very well for the future of Uber." https://www.inc.com/jessica-stillman/in-just-8-words-ubers-new-ceo-gave-a-masterclass-i.html?cid=search brings me to the following topic as basis for my 44 questions trial:
"I have to tell you I am scared."

What a journey? If you just give yourself 10 minutes for 44 questions, there is not a lot of time to think about something in detail. You just write down, what comes up next. This is one of the strength of this model, just give it a try yourself 😉.
Are there difficulties? Are there complexities? Are there challenges? Absolutely, but that’s also what makes it fun. -- Dara Khosrowshahi
