I think the best approach is “having a question”.

Data are meant to find a structure out of them.

There are a lot of further issues with collecting data, like selecting only those that show affinity with our question; etc. but that’s another story for another time.

By the way, “how can I create a question” is the question.

I think questions are a natural function -- they come spontaneous, when observing facts: Why? When? Wherefore?

So paradoxically, the best approach is not really “having a question” but “observation”.

Because only through pure observation we can see different aspects of an Object and get data from it: because I think Science is the art of building relations among data.

See you around
