My Favorite Question

What's your favorite question to ask people?  Have you ever given any real thought to it?  Right now, I have a favorite question.  It's been #1 for a couple years.  I ask new hires, friends, contemporaries, mentors and occasionally strangers.  I feel like the answer is instructive, no matter who answers it.

What have you wasted the most time doing?  What do you wish you'd done with that time?
