Want To Innovate? Science Says, Be Curious! | The Creativity Post

This is a BIG piece on curiosity. Give yourself 20 minutes to read this. It is worth the time.

I’m serious, I’ve read this three or four times looking to summarise or paraphrase the material but there is so much here.

An eight step outline: identify and remove limits to curiosity, question (my favourite skill), become interesting by connecting with your sense of wonder, open yourself to new ideas and adventures, go deep, build encouraging and deep relationships, play, and live and work with enquiring minds.

That’s just the outline. Each section has five to ten bullet action points.

My summary: Question, dance and act.

Kea Toa Kea Ngakaunui

At first glance, curiosity seems annoying because it can make a task take longer. A closer look can reveal how the extra time curiosity takes can make the task more rewarding and the outcome more unique.
