Well, here’s a simple idea:  Ask “Why?”

“Don’t just stand there–do something.” “We need to change the organization.”

I’m big on doing stuff, too. But I’ve learned that being busy doesn’t necessarily lead to what I want to achieve. Why? Because I didn’t ask “why?” ”

“Why?” can come across as a threatening question. It gets at purpose and motive.

And let me tell you, the correct answer is NOT “because everyone else is.”
