If you know me at all, you know that I am a super curious person. I have a belief that curiosity is the engine that drives all connection, relationships, and innovation. And that if we all show up in a curious way in our lives, we will be happier, and so will those around us. Curiosity moves us.
Curiosity begins with an awareness that there are things we don’t know. To be truly curious requires one to be open minded, receptive to new ideas and unlimited possibilities. It is not a complicated idea, and it can begin with something as simple as asking a question and listening to the whole answer, and then asking another question. A cycle is then born.
We cannot be judgmental and curious at the same time. We can choose to look at things and assume what their purpose is, or that they have no purpose. We can unwittingly let opportunities pass us by. We can make judgements about people that may be hurtful and destructive or we can broaden our understanding and expand out horizons of caring. We can be explorers, innovators and change makers. It all begins with curiosity.
I believe in this so strongly that I wrote a book about it, called "That's a Really Good Question".
