Instead of asking ‘What should we do?’ … try asking this instead: ‘What could we do?’
A group of friends entered a restaurant on a busy Saturday night. They were informed that the wait time is 45 minutes. One of the friends asked the group: ‘What should we do?’ — looking for a directive/prescriptive answer. Another friend from the group asked: ‘What could we do?’ — looking for possibilities/ideas from the group. The latter created conversations that lead to a decision by the group. The former met a dead end… silence.
