As you keep asking why, you’ll get closer and closer to the root cause of something. Knowing what causes that one thing which causes that other thing which causes that core thing let’s you then be able to really get at the root of something and not just hack at the branches, the things that won’t produce real change.

Try asking why 7 times today. That may sound silly, but you most likely don’t ask it that many times already. Try it out. You’ll see that things will make more sense and you’ll understand more things. You’ll get real change in time.

Why. 7 times. Today.
