At a recent holiday party, a friend described today’s mood as one where it is vital to be radically curious. There are so many unknowns, so many possible ways for events to unfold, so many different roles to play and choices to make.
I like this phrase, “radically curious,” because it speaks to the best of the human condition and is universal. One can be radically curious about almost anything — art, politics, literature, music, food, sports, mechanics, energy, water, culture, relationships… you name it. In a world of sound bites, perhaps we have lost some of that impulse to seek out the truth in stories for ourselves.
So stay curious. Stay radically curious. And follow that curiosity wherever it leads you.
