Curiousity

I seem to be a curious sort. I ask lots of questions across a wide range of interests. I read dozens of books simultaneously and finish those that I satisfy my wonder.

Curiosity may have killed the cat (unlikely) but for me (and maybe you) it is the breath of life. Seeking light when there is fog, looking for treasure when the road isn’t clear, being challenged with new ideas keeps us breathing. When we believe that there is nothing new to learn, we begin to wither and life begins to drain away.

Sitting in front of a predictable TV program or wallowing in some pseudo reality nonsense drains your reserves rather than fills them. Curiosity is the challenge that our desire for learning presents.

Go to your local library and type an interest area into the catalogue search. Pick up 5 or 6 of the titles and flip through them waiting to have your interest piqued. Take a couple home today and read them over the next week. Search out a video or documentary on the subject. If it is part of your learning style, take notes. Check out reference materials and other work by the same author. Take a sidestep and converge on one idea for a couple days and then see how far you can diverge again.

One of the titles I am reading ” The Brain That Changes itself” by Norman Doge M.D. offers some amazing stories of what can happen when we exercise our grey matter and retrain our brain.

Make Today remarkable by getting curious,

    1. Pat,

      I have been amazed by how busy my life feels with three additional charges and a different household. Back to normal soon.
      Thanks for noticing,
