Questions have power, they are the source of amazing conclusions, they let us and lead us to a path which ends at great ideas. Questions can help us discover the depths of a certain situation, they can help us be clear on our original motive and stop us from derailing, not only that questions are the starting point of building an amazing relationship with those around us, they help us know people better. The fact that questions can be this powerful and empowering is a well known one among those who have made their name in some way or the other that we can’t stop but mention them to infuse and spread the ideas of amazingness.
Here are a few great people and how questions were an inseparable part of their life
Albert Einstein said, “the important thing is to not to stop questioning.” In another instance, he was quoted saying, “ It’s not that I am smart, it’s just that I stay with the questions much longer.”
Steve Jobs asked this question to himself every day, “ If today were the last day of my life would I want to do what I am about to do today.” He told the graduates of Stanford in his famous speech that “whenever the answer has been no for too many days, I know I need to change something.”
Voltaire a French writer and philosopher said, “Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.”
And the list goes on and on everything starts at questions the greatest discoveries, best solutions, and literally everything. Isaac Newton asked, “ Why does an apple fall from a tree?”, Albert Einstein asked, “what would the universe look like if I rode through it on a beam of light?”, Steve Jobs asked, “why can’t we build a computer that is for everyone and not just some tech-savvy people?” We all learn from questions, to get answers first there must be questions.
But still, why ask questions? There’s this depreciating notion swirling among certain people that asking questions will make them appear weak and someone who knows nothing. That they might be judged and looked down upon but wait a minute, nobody in this world knows everything and if you won’t ask you probably will never know it. So, go ahead ask, it’s not something that makes you weak but something that makes you powerful.
“He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes, he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever.” – Chinese Proverb

We too have a question for you.
What Are Your Thoughts About An ERP?
Complicated, difficult to use, expensive, not at all user-friendly, limited, only for big companies etc. Well, these were ours because this is what we saw in the market. The good ones are expensive and still ugly, the economical ones well, let’s not talk about them. So, we decided to change things and it started with a question. “what if running business were that simple?” well “that” here is just a degree which keeps on increasing everytime we achieve it.
So, we worked on a revolutionary enterprise solution that we call S.I.M.P.L.E., which is really simple to use, has 1500+ modules, and is modular so you get everything you need and nothing you don’t.
