You may want to shut your laptop or turn off your phone while you become still inside (a state sometimes more readily accessible through movement) and feel into what this question is.
The process of choosing your question can in itself be a valuable way to gain greater clarity: a good question can cut to the heart of the matter in an illuminating way.
This doesn't mean it has to be earth-shatteringly profound; to gain clarity on an apparently mundane issue which you nevertheless can't resolve can shift the energy in a liberating way.
A subtle change in wording can completely change the question: i.e. the response to What would be the probable result of working with F on this project? might be very positive, whereas asking What would be the probable result of approaching F about working on this project now? could indicate that, for whatever reason, communication is blocked at this point.
Don’t make the question one which requires a yes/no answer. Instead, you can use wording such as ‘what would be the probable result of…?’ or ‘what would the most beneficial approach to… be?’
Also ensure that you're just asking one question; 'What approach would be the best with S ~ A, B or C?' for example, is three questions in one. In an example like this, you could ask about the option which feels most right to you first. You may find the response clearly affirms your choice…or, faced with a more ambiguous answer, you can then ask about the alternatives.
Different people have different approaches: while some are very minimal and only divine occasionally, others may ask more frequently and/or have more of a 'counselling session' approach, asking several questions about one issue from different angles. You'll find your own approach which feels right…and this may well evolve as your relationship deepens.
