Questions that come in threes

Jessica Mah is the CEO/founder of inDinero, a startup to help small businesses with their accounting needs. In an otherwise dull NY Times interview lurks this gem:

Q: Do you have any favorite interview questions?

A: Yes, I ask the same ones to every single candidate. Some are, “What’s the hardest you’ve ever worked in your life, what’s your most lofty ambition and what are you doing for self-development?”

First off, these are great questions! I especially love the question about self-development. The questions have an interesting parallel in the questions we ask in the daily standup:

What did you do (since we last met)?

What will you do next?

Are you blocked?

Past, future and present!
