One of the best parts of my day is breakfast with my family in the early morning, post-workout. This is when we talk about our goals for the day. It’s also when our four kids ask a lot of questions. Most of which I don’t have all the answers to, but I admire the thirst for knowledge.
We don’t ask enough questions as adults.
Kids are like sponges, but when we grow up, most of us lose this curiosity. We accept things the way they are. We specialize in a single skill or industry and don’t consider other possibilities. We stop asking questions.
But what if we changed that today? Let’s take a step backward and get curious again.
Our curiosity opens up new possibilities. It can help us learn new things and can be a key driver in our careers and personal lives. Being curious helps us grow.
So, how do we become curious?
There’s nothing worse than getting a canned answer to a real question. Not only do these answers not teach us anything, but they don’t encourage us to explore further. I believe that you need to ask questions in a way that gets real answers. One of the best ways to do that is to ask why?
It’s a simple mindset shift that forces you to question everything around you.
