“Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.” ~ Tony Robbins
What kind of questions are you asking your spouse on a regular basis?
We have a tendency to ask the same kinds of things over and over again. That is good if we are asking good questions. Sometimes it helps change things up for a fresh perspective.
A Year of Questions
One way to change things up and get fresh perspective is to use a list of good questions. I previously posted four links to great questions to ask on a date night here.
Another great tool I want to recommend is A Year of Questions for You and Your Spouse by Lori Beyer from The Generous Wife. This is a document you can print out, cut the questions into strips and put in a container.
Grab one at any time to spark some good conversation with your spouse.
Something my wife and I have done a few times in the past but plan to do more this year is ask each other a set of questions each week. These are good questions to ask regularly in order to get current with each other.
Here are five questions to ask each other weekly.
- What was the high point of your week?
- What was your biggest challenge this past week?
- What are you looking forward to next week?
- What can I do to help you this coming week?
- What are we going to do on our next date?
You could even print these up and take them with you on your next Spouse Date.
This list was inspired others I have seen. Here are a few that I liked best:
Check them out. You can reword any of these and use them, or come up with your own.
What would happen if you tried asking some of these questions once a week for a month? Would you know each other better?
Try it. You might like it.
Now whether you go out on a date or simply take time together I would encourage you to try one of these methods, if not both.
Knowing and being known takes effort but is so very worth it. I hope these tools help.
