ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTION

Posted on: January 31, 2008


Jack and Max are walking from religious service. Jack wonders whether it would be all right to smoke while praying.


Max replies, “Why don’t you ask the Priest?”


So Jack goes up to the Priest and asks, “
Father, may I smoke while I pray ?”


The Priest replies, “No, my son, you may not! That’s utter disrespect to our religion.”


Jack goes back to his friend and tells him what the good Priest told him.


Max says, “I’m not surprised. You asked the wrong question. Let me try.”

And so Max goes up to the Priest and asks, “Father, may I pray while I smoke ?”

To which the Priest eagerly replies, “By all means, my son. By all means. You can always pray whenever you want to.”


Moral of the story is …. The reply you get depends on the question you ask.


For example, if you want a vacation when still working on a project don’t ask for the holiday;


Ask: “Can I keep working on this project while I’m on vacation?”
