“Oftentimes the thing that makes the difference between a good student and a poor one, a good learner or a bored human being, is just a little curiosity. If you have it, cultivate it, feed it. Never let it go. If you do not have it – get it. Wonder, watch, ask questions, be alive. It’s just that simple”
~Marjorie Pay Hinckley
The difference between sustainable, recurring success and a pattern of failure often comes down to a question of curiosity. Spend a little time today in critical reflection of your own thought patterns, habits and behaviors. Do you accept information and decisions at face value, or do you ask questions and clarify intent? Do you hold on to your opinions and beliefs long after the basis of these have been refuted or challenged? Or do you allow your beliefs to evolve through an ongoing habit of questioning, reading, listening, and learning? It is your choice. You can be stuck in a pattern of mediocrity and even ongoing failure, or you can take control of your destiny through critical thinking, intelligent inquiry, and flexibility to change and evolve. Be curious!
