Questions Begin the Quest

     Many people emphasize the importance of an answer to a question as opposed to the importance of the question being asked. According to Peter Drucker, well known writer and management consultant, “The most common source of mistakes in management decisions is the emphasis on finding the right answer rather than the right question.”

     It makes sense…we are a society focused on the results.  We focus on chase, conquer, and move on to the next goal.  Often we focus on what’s not working instead of what is working.  Well thought-out questions begin a quest.  You get a great deal of information when you ask the right questions.  With the right questions, you get a sense of awe and inspiration.

Victoria Sanchez of Victoria Sanchez Interiors in Alexandria, VA, www.victoriasanchezinteriors.com, was inspired by her own children for the design of Space 21, the Teenager’s Getaway. “I looked to their likes and dislikes, and their wants and desires as I created this design,” says Sanchez, who is excited to part of the Design House but also knows the amount of work that had to be completed in a short period of time.
