James Clear posted the following quote today:
“There are nearly endless opportunities to improve each day and finding them largely boils down to being curious.
People who are better in the end are usually curious in the beginning.”
I think of myself of as a curious person. I like to figure out how things work. I try to research something that is broken to see if I can fix it myself. I read books about subjects such as high end audio to better learn about how to build a hifi system. I’m curious about the records I find in thrift and antique stores. What do they sound like? Are they valuable? Can I sell them?
The goal then for me is not to be curious, but to stay curious.
That sounds easy, but some days it can be hard to flex that curiosity muscle.
But reading James’ quote reminds me to flex it daily, regardless of how I feel.
