Catalyzing Curiosity

A curious mind begins with the premise that things may not be what they seem on the surface, and that exploring the scaffolding of one’s point of view may help you uncover faulty or beautiful assumptions that aren’t necessarily obvious at first glance.

I lost count of the amount of times I've re-read this quote probably because we do live in a world where the default reaction is to judge and not necessarily take the time to assess situations or people. The quote is from a book I'm currently reading entitled Wisdom at Work: The Making of a Modern Elder by Chip Conley in which he "captures the essence of such an important dynamic in today's working world - how we can be both mentors and mentees...and how those of us who are a bit older can both teach the younger generations some important lessons we have learned through experience...and at the same time be open to what they have to teach us." Highly recommend!
