Cut Red Tape With This Powerful Question
Make Life Easier
Ready for it? Here goes:
What would you do if you were me?
When asked, this simple question forces folks to put on their empathy hats and think.
Plus, studies show that folks who ask for advice are seen as more competent, and therefore more likable. Why?

So, the next time you’re in a situation where you just can’t get the answers you need, break out the question — What would you do if you were me? — and see where it gets you.
I’ve used it myself, and trust me, it works!
