One of the best things about this book is the introductory chapter where Tim describes lessons learned in asking good questions over the years.

These lessons include:

  • Sequencing of the questions for maximum impact.
  • Starting with simpler questions as a warm up for the brain. This is no different than warming up before a workout.
  • How and when to best approach busy people to get questions answered.

The ability to ask good questions is extremely valuable for building great projects and professional development.

Discipline Vs. Motivation
Leadership requires a balance between motivation and discipline. These are two very different things and if you are relying on motivation to keep you going it is likely that you will come up short on long-term goals.
