21st Century Education: The most important thing is to ask the right question.


21st Century Education by @TriKro

The ability to answer pre-formulated questions doesn’t help us as entrepreneurs. When building a new business model, there is no test or quiz to cram for.

I modified your title because otherwise I will never be able to find this page again.

You make a good point.

The answer doesn't matter if we don't ask the right question.

I also like that your wish list for 21st century education includes prioritization, retrospectives, communication, emotional awareness, and patience.

I also dig the Einstein quote you used:

“If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.” – Albert Einstein

As a pic:

Love it, I just changed the title of the post to 

21st Century Education: Ask the Right Questions

Sweet, it's like you tested the title. :)

Too many entrepreneurs assume they have to know everything in order to get funding. They jump to answer every question with the confidence of a prophet.

But when we pretend to know everything and jump straight to the answers, we’re invariably failing to ask the right question. Trying to fool everyone into thinking we know everything just winds up fooling ourselves.

Admitting ignorance allows us to ask the right questions.
