Take It From Yogi Berra

by | Mar 21, 2013

Yogi Berra, the legendary New York Yankees catcher and Baseball Hall of Famer, is also one of the world's great philosophers, having contributed immortal insights like "It ain't over 'til it's over" and "It's deja vu all over again" to the lexicon. But here's a Yogi-ism you may not know:

"Ask questions. Maybe it might lead to something."

Berra, who stands only 5'7" and played at 185lb., is hardly the prototype of the big, strong, fast catcher. But he never stopped asking questions of managers, coaches and fellow players. His accumulated knowledge helped make him one of the best players in baseball history.

Never rest on your laurels and don't be ashamed of admitting what you don't know. And even if you think you know it, why not ask again? Questions lead to new connections, perspectives, and common ground that will take you farther than you knew you could go.
