Asking the Right Question is Everything

Here are two quotes I've been pondering lately. 

If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and five minutes thinking about solutions.
— Albert Einstein
Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.
— Pierre-Marc-Gaston de Lévis

As a Design Strategist, how well I solve problems directly relates to the quality of questions I ask.
