I recently read an article about Peter Drucker and A.G. Lafley being curious and how it has led to some amazing insights. Their advice is to decide to learn something new without anyone asking you to. Karen Dillon, Editor of Harvard Business Review has “covered many entrepreneurs and many of the great ones were relentlessly curious, freely daring to reach out to people they thought they could learn from, even when it wasn’t clear why those people would give them the time of day. The morale of the story is that great thinkers and innovators make deliberate choices to be curious and then dare to pick up the phone, email someone, or start their own research project. Great connections that lead to game-changing insights aren’t made randomly.” You need to make discovery a priority project. What journey of discovery is going to top you to-do list Monday morning?
