Refreshed and ready for launch

Welcome to the new, redesigned version of For those who are old friends of the site (well, not that old; we’ve been around for about two years), you may find you hardly recognize the place. So let me provide a quick tour: Start with the eight boxes to the right, which serve as doorways into the site’s featured sections. There is a lot to explore in there; for example, that first section, “What is a beautiful question?,” not only defines that term but also takes you to a collection of real-life stories (excerpted from my new book) that show how amazing breakthroughs can begin with a question.

If you want to know why and how questioning can change your business or your life, check out “Why should you care about questioning?” To meet some of the brilliant innovators and artists featured in my book, click on the “Master Questioners” box. Want to know what Anne Frank had to say about questioning? Go to our “Quotes” page. Also, as we’ve done at this site from the start, we invite people to submit their own “beautiful questions,” to be added to our growing collection.

Three more things in particular I’d like to call your attention to: One is our new “Inquiry Quotient” quiz, a fun way to find out if you’re a natural-born questioner. And don’t miss out on “Freebies,” where you can sign up for a free copy of the ebook “Stop, Think, Create” (we’re getting great feedback from the hundreds of readers who’ve already received their free ebook). Last, but not least, check out “What’s in the book” to find out the latest on the soon-to-be published A More Beautiful Question.

Speaking of which, we’re now less than four months from the book’s publication in early March 2014. This means two things:

1) I am getting very excited about the launch.

2) I am now finally finished working on the book, which means I’ll have more time to focus on keeping things new, fresh, and exciting on this site. You can expect new content every week, and I hope you enjoy it. I also hope you’ll take advantage of the site’s new, improved design (created by the immensely talented Laura E. Kelly) to engage, learn, share, and have fun. Please let me know your thoughts—and, of course, your questions.
