I ran across this the other day and decided to share with you, the reader.
This method can work if used in a constructive manner.
I will add – don’t always ask with why, but rather ask in a different manner.
Example: (Same as above)
Speeding ticket (Why what happened?)
I overslept (How did you oversleep?)
No alarm was set (alarm broken?)
I forgot to set it (Insert joke here involving attention)
I went to bed late (Insert second joke here)
Usually this is the actual root issue, but the above is good enough
Of course, this is how I usually ask in the example, but use your own discretion. If you’re asking yourself, the why can be just a why.
