Philosophical Experiences

  • Steven Segal

Abstract

Anita Roddick tells us that she learnt from experience. She also tells us that to learn from experience means to “never stop asking questions, and knock on doors to seek as many different opinions as exist. Then you have to make up your own mind.” (Roddick, 2000, p. 39) Surely, as practical people, we cannot always be asking questions. For the most part we need to get the work done. In getting the work done we need to be goal focused. Asking questions is not always a good idea when we need to be goal focused rather than question focused. Indeed, we tend to get irritated with people who come asking questions whilst we are on the job.
