Weekly Roundup: 100 Questions in 100 Days

Do you get asked a lot of questions in your line of work?

The ability to help people solve their problems is one of the most valuable traits you can have in life.

Interestingly, problem finders are often more valuable than problem solvers. They are more attuned to the needs of others.

The more complex the problem, the more important it is to be able to explore all the underlying issues and define the real problem with laser precision. Once we know what the real problem is, the solution is often surprisingly simple.

However, other times we have a small issue. And all we need is a simple answer to a relatively straight-forward question.

I get asked a lot of questions.

I love it when people ask me questions.

So much so that on 30 November 2015 I quietly started a personal challenge. I created a YouTube channel and set myself a goal to answer 100 questions in 100 days.

This week, Tuesday 8 March marked day 100 and the day I uploaded video answer #100.

I hope you find it valuable. I’ve answered 100 of the most common questions people ask me, largely about return to work and workers comp. Bookmark it and refer to it when you need to.

I’ll eventually get them transcribed to make it so you can read them at work.

And I’ll keep adding to it – just not every day. I need a break from it. And a coffee.

P.S. I must confess there was one question that stumped me:

     “What’s the difference between WorkSafe and the Victorian WorkCover Authority?”

My answer:

     “I have no idea. I can’t find any difference. They’re basically the same thing.”

I was slightly chuffed to gain some confirmation direct from the source:
