Thought-full Thursday: The Inspiration of Questions

Every Thursday, we provide you with a thoughtful way to coach yourself – something all leaders need to do. So take five and enjoy something different this week; questions that have inspired and solved important things in our world. Finally, reflect on the final question.

“What would the universe look like if I were riding on the end of a light beam at the speed of light?” ~Albert Einstein; the question that led to the theory of relativity. 

“What might DNA look like in a 3D form?” ~Watson and Crick; the question that led to the discovery of the double helix.

“What is the most ethical action we might take?” ~Johnson & Johnson leaders; the question that helped them to successfully deal with the Tylenol crisis in the 1980’s.

“Where can I get a good hamburger on the road?” ~Ray Kroc; the question that led to the development of McDonalds.
