THIS WEEK: START A HOBBY

Hobbies are delightful things. They build on our natural curiosity and bring excitement and joy into our lives in so many different ways. But this doesn’t mean we are good at starting or sticking to them. We live busy lives, we have our routines, and […]

THIS WEEK: CHANGE YOUR ROUTINE

How do you get to work everyday? Where do you shop for groceries, clothes, or your dry cleaners? What are your favorite restaurants? Where do you exercise? How do you spend your weekends? We suspect these were pretty easy questions to answer. Why? Because we […]

THIS WEEK: DECIDE TO DISCOVER

Human beings have always been discovering. We’ve discovered cures for illnesses. We’ve discovered new cultures, languages, and galaxies. We’ve also discovered new forms of transportation, new underground cities, and new ways to better understand one another. And just when we think we have discovered everything […]

THIS WEEK: BE A NEWBIE

Remember being new to a school, job, or even when traveling to a new city, state, or country? On the surface it seems exciting, fresh, and full of wonder, but deep inside it can be quite the opposite. In fact, it can be downright uncomfortable, […]

THIS WEEK: CROSS CULTURES

It is often said that the world is becoming a melting pot. But have you really stopped to process the literal translation of this analogy? Well, let’s take a moment to do just that. Think soup or stew… a bowl of different ingredients all put […]

THIS WEEK: OBSERVE MORE

Being curious is a mindset. For many of us, it just comes naturally. We are wired to take notice, ponder, imagine. For others, it’s different. Some of us block out our periphery and stick with the straight and narrow. In either case, being curious requires […]

THIS WEEK: TRY IT

In life, there are things we know, things we know we don’t know, and things we don’t know that we don’t know. We will give you a second to piece all of that together. Okay, time’s up. It’s difficult to do much with the things […]

THIS MONTH: MONDAY GETS CURIOUS

Are you someone who is eager to know or learning something? Do things you see or hear grab your attention and cause you to ponder or ask questions? And how big is your comfort zone? For some of us, we have created pretty small and safe little boxes around ourselves. For others, the sky is the limit. And, for those truly fearless few, there isn’t even a sky… they are boundless, “I will try anything once” adventurers. Well, we are not going to get too crazy with all of this, but, this month, we are going to push it a tad. And, if you are curious about where all this is headed, then you are in the perfect place, because this month is going to be all about getting curious. Our world offers so much to try, explore, learn, and appreciate. When we first enter into the world, we are curious about everything, because everything is new. We have to press “that” button. We can’t resist “tasting” that hot sauce. And, when someone tells us not to do something it only makes us more intrigued. However, as we get older, we start to form routines and patterns. We often lose our sense of curiosity, either out of potential risk or discomfort, but also because maybe we just think we know it all already. Well, we don’t. We promise. So get ready to step out and step up this month. Being curious matters.
