Something I've been encouraged by for as long as I can remember is asking questions and not really worrying too much about whether that person's background is applicable. And as I get older I see people are resourceful, and tend to ask people in their field questions about their field.
But what if we stopped doing that.
What if we started asking people with absolutely zero background about the topic at hand?
What if we started asking people who had enough life experience instead of industry experience?
What if we asked people younger than us?
I truly feel we'd learn, might get a fresh perspective, might be able to solve problems we didn't even know existed, might open our minds more than we originally planned.
Think of the magic in that.
