“What’s good on the menu here?” A seasoned waiter or waitress knows that this is not really the question the guest was asking. In all reality, it was a stated desire. What they really said was, ‘I’m here to dance and I need you show me where that happens on the menu.’
“Where should I put my money?” The financial planner, if he’s listening here, recognizes this is a request for long-term dance-ability. In other words, the question was ‘where can we put this so that I’m dancing at 90?’

Next time you see yourself, think DJ.
Cue the music.
