Day 2: Discover, Uncover, Create
Imagine the ways that we are curious.
We can reach out and DISCOVER something: perhaps we watch a YouTube video, or read a book or blog and learn something new.
We can UNCOVER more details by digging deeper: once something has sparked your curiosity, do you delve further into it? Maybe by link hopping, or asking questions, or trying something out and letting your hands and mind explore a new sensation, thought, or material.
We can CREATE something: in our moments of inspiration, our curiosity can help us to assemble chunks of what we discover or unearth into something new. A new way of knowing. A new perspective, a new ability. These are not things we just pick up fully formed, but rather something we create ourselves out of the fragments that curiosity collects.
- How do we discover things as we are curious? Write down a ‘name’, a ‘place’, a ‘behaviour’, or a ‘habit’ that can lead to discovery.
- Are there specific skills to uncover something when our curiosity demands it? Can you name one?
- What do you need in order to CREATE? Is it ‘time’, ‘resource’, a ‘community’, or something else? When you have your answer, ask someone else what they think about this too.
#WorkingOutLoud on ‘Curiosity’
This week i am developing some concepts for a potential ‘100 days’ book.
‘Curiosity: My 1st 100 Days’ takes you on a guided, reflective journey, to build your own understanding of what Curiosity is, and how being curious can unlock both your, and others, potential.
