My Question Journal

In yesterday’s podcast conversation, educational leader Tony Wagner suggested starting and keeping a question journal as a way of keeping curious and young. At least, I took how he described it that way.

I don’t know if people have found ways to make them work better, but I’ve learned that starting first leads to improving faster than trying to start perfectly. As I put it, I have low standards the first time.

[EDIT: After posting I searched “question journal” to find examples to learn from, but found nothing relevant, only books with questions to prompt journal writing. I’ll keep looking, but I expected something. Maybe Tony and I are blazing a trail.]


  • How do you plant a tree?
  • How do you make a pizza crust from cauliflower that holds together?
  • Is there an online marketer out there as passionate about leadership and the environment as me?
  • Can billions of people learn to act in stewardship within a few years?
  • Can billions of people learn to create 1 to 1.5 children per couple for a few decades?

I’ll keep recording questions, I guess forever.
