How are you?



❔Simple question, right?

❔But...is it really?

❔How do you answer this question?



🟣Do you make a difference between who asks this question (partner, friend, colleague, someone you just met)?


🟣What does this question mean to you?


🟣What does this questions mean to the person being asked?


🟣When are you sharing more and when are you simply replying "doing well, and you?"?


🟣What do you really want to know when you ask someone "how are you"? Or maybe it's just part of saying hi?


🟣How much time, interest, empathy are you willing to give for this question?


🟣What do you do when someone opens up and shares with you how she/he is doing and you realise you don’t have the time right now?


🟣And what if you're not comfortable hearing all that because you did not expect that, as it was just a simple "how are you saying hi sort of thing”?


🟣What value can you create by asking this question?


🟣What value can you create when replying?


So....how are you now? ; )
