How are you intentionally growing, improving and learning? You don’t have to be in school to continue learning.
One of the best ways to learn is to remain curious. A curious mind dives beneath the surface of common acceptance to unravel the details driving the process. Why not ask why?
Here are some tips on learning through curiosity:
- Suspend Judgment– when you keep an open mind you shut down the filters that subtly distort the reality of what you are experiencing, this will help you see things with new perspective and fresh insights
- Ask Questions –what, why, when, who, where, and how give curious leaders the ability to dig deeper beneath the surface of what is going on around them
- Expand Your Horizons – read a book in a different genre, participate in an event that you’ve never been to or vacation somewhere new. Don’t spend all your time in just one world; take a look at other worlds. It will introduce you to the possibilities and excitement of the other worlds which may spark your interest to explore them further.
The benefits of being curious are multifold. You will learn more. You will be a more effective observer which translates into more effective leadership. You will open up new worlds of possibilities. Being curious ensures that your mind remains active rather than on passive auto-pilot. Be a leader and learn through curiosity.
