It can be easy to look at everything you are accomplishing in life and feel like you are doing things well enough. If something is working, after all, why change it? I have found it helpful to think of exploring new ideas before making a change, to see if an idea resonates with me before trying it.
I love getting new ideas of how to do things better and more efficiently. That’s why I recently read “The Productivity Project”, by Chris Bailey. When it comes to productivity, here is a list of reasons why I’m productive, and why I learn new things.
- I like exploring new ideas.
- I like seeing how others live their lives.
- I enjoy experimenting to see what works and what doesn’t.
- I want to see what I can accomplish and how far I can push myself.
- I love to learn.
- I think ideas are some of the most powerful forces in the world.
- Exploring ideas and greater efficiency gives me something to talk about with others.
- Gathering new ideas reminds me that there is always another way of handling something or of looking at a situation.
- Being productive reminds me that I can contribute to the world.
- Seeking ways to be more productive gives me a reason to keep learning, growing, and exploring.
Greater productivity might not be what motivates you to keep being curious. Here are some questions to ask yourself about why you want to keep using your noodle.
- What do you want to know more about?
- What benefits would this bring you?
- What could you do to feed your curiosity that is manageable, given your current level of responsibility?
- What is one thing you can do each day to grow your knowledge?
- How will continuing to ask, and find the answers to, questions help you now and in the future?
I hope this list of questions motivates you to keep expanding your horizons. I would love to know where your curiosity is taking you. Feel free to leave a comment.
