Why Not is an Interesting Question

 “Why not? Is a slogan for an interesting life.”

Mason Cooley 1927 -2002, American Writer




As I see it . . . . . . .

Why not is an interesting question


Why not . . . . me?


Why not . . . . right now?


Why not . . . . just do it?


Why not . . . . is a question that only you can ask.


Why not . . . . is a question that only you can answer.


Do you know . . . . what you want?


Do you know . . . . why you want it?


Are your wants . . . . a like to?


Are your wants . . . . a must in your life?


Ask yourself why not . . . . is an awakening question. In asking why not you will understand your what. In answering the question . . . .  you will discover your why.


Your what . . . .  is what you want . . . . . Clarify your what . . . . to get a clear vision on what you want and turn into a goal.


Your why . . . . is why you want it . . . . Your why has to be strong enough to remove that obstacles that you encounter on the way to accomplishing your what and your goal.


Asking yourself why not is an interesting question . . . . It will challenge your thinking . . . . stretch your imagination to new levels to come up with new answers. And if the answers create a must have in your life . . . . or a like to.

Great post, Lou. Reminds me of the quote "some people ask why, I ask why not," but I can't for the life of me remember right now to whom it's attributed.

Love this Lou, and I too am reminded of the quote Nina Hollander mentioned. We can learn quite a bit if we would just ask this question.

One more thing. It's also a very good reply to "You can't do that" or "That won't work."

Good morning Lou - "Why Not?" is a great counter question to "Why?"  It opens a new line of thinking.

Good morning Lou Ludwig,

Hi Lou

"Why not?" is certainly an intriguing question to answer, especially if you consider the opportunities it presents.

Hello Lou,

I am glad that Kathy added this to her weekly round up.  I am a big fan of "why not" much to the dismay of those around me.  The question opens doors that would not have opened otherwise.

Why not does make sense when put like this...much better than when I asked my father "why not" warned against doing something!

"Why not?" can make someone face the real reasons they might not be getting where they want to be.
