03 Mar THIS WEEK: BE CURIOUS
Even though we often think differently, there is no way for us to know it all. As badly as we would like to, the fact is that the world would be pretty boring if we understood everything, right away, all the time. Fortunately, we have curiosity to use as a tool to learn and discover, and to help us get to know others and situations better. So, this week, we’re inviting you to BE CURIOUS and to use curiosity to better understand the world and the people in it. Being curious starts with admitting that we have more to learn—that the world is full of wonder to discover, different perspectives to be open-minded to, and countless stories to embrace that make each of us who we are. When we were kids, it was easy. Life was one big curious adventure, void of self and social awareness. However, as adults, things changed. We developed egos and biases. Admitting we might be wrong or might have more to learn doesn’t necessarily roll of our tongue. This week, adopt a learning mind, drop your narratives, and start asking questions… and listening. Take the time to learn about others and situations you aren’t familiar with. Hold off on making opinions or bold statements until you hear the other side. And be open to whatever you learn. Curiosity is power… and it matters.
