Do you hear why a lot? Do you ask why a lot? To whom do you ask this question the most? Do you ask yourself, other people, or the universe?

Is there another word or question which is in such need of context? Do you often here why when someone is asked to do something? Does it come-up at home and at work? Do you find yourself asking the same why question about things you are asked to do? (Asking yourself, if not someone else). In this context, is why sometimes an attempt at understanding and sometimes a form of protest?

Is why the question of choice when unexpected or adverse things happen? Do people use why to question the one who might be responsible for the problem? Is it also asked of God or the universe? Perhaps followed by the word me? Why me?

Is it a question that demands an explanation? Is there any time when a yes or no is a satisfactory response to why? Does that alone make it a great question?

Ask “why” five times about every matter.–Taiichi Ohno

Do some of the common, or maybe classic, responses to why seem inadequate or trite to you? Are why not and because worthy responses? Is why sometimes a good response to why?

Why? How often do you ask why? How often do you wonder why? How often do you understand why? Do you know your why?
