Maybe, curiosity kills cats; definitely, curiosity motivates people.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Perhaps, many animals are curious. Certainly, some are...cats have a reputation for it. Human beings must be the most curious animal on Earth. Curiosity is in our DNA. Curiosity is the root of innovation, invention, and creativity.

[I don't think curiosity kills cats...it just makes them very interesting.]

Take your big treasure chest of Curiosity off the shelf...dust it off...open it up...and put its contents to good use.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

At one time, you were an incessantly curious and creative person. You were chock full of curiosity. Over the years and through the criticism, you've locked much of your curiosity away...right beside your childhood dreams...and near your adolescent dreams.

Choose to take your big treasure chest of Curiosity off the shelf.

***

You were an incessant dreamer...night & day...light & heavy...fantastic...motivating.

Criticism and the trials of day-to-day life caused you to shelve many of your vibrant dreams.

Forgotten dreams, hidden gems, brightening lights.

Curiosity sits close to Spirit...always envisioning and whispering ideas.

When Spirit is vibrant, it listens intently and allows Curiosity free rein to explore.

Optimists pave the paths so pessimists can rule the world

by Rick Baker
On May 16, 2017

Now isn't that a fine piece of ‘mob thinking’...debatable, yet mostly true, and too often rather disappointing. 

Optimists stand out. Their curiosity leads to the creativity of new things that help take the world toward their vision of a better future. Then pessimists figure out how to use those optimist creations to rule that better world, often to serve their self-focused views and needs. 

Optimists favour freedom in its various forms, especially freedom laced around curiosity and creativity

Pessimists favour discipline, rules, and controls.

The common ground where optimists and pessimists can stand together and self-actualize together is – Growth....all entrepreneurial leaders love to build and grow things.

A key to success: find the growth that aligns with both the pessimists’ good habits and the optimists’ interests in new things

Creativity in science appears when insightful theories test known 'truths'. The same applies in business.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If the writers of screen and theater plays decide the status quo is good enough and stop coming up with new ways to get our attention and entertain us, few of us will continue to go to the theaters and cinemas.

If scientists decide the status quo is good enough and stop coming up with and experimenting around new theories, few of us will continue to fund scientific research.

If business owners decide the status quo is good enough...
