Asking the Way, Ko Un
In 2018, the Harvard Business Review published a study titled, “Why Curiosity Matters.” In it, the piece explores curiosity as a pre=requisite to human innovation and progress, eventually leading to financial and business success. But the benefits of curiosity extend far beyond the tactical elements of consumer growth and invention – genuine curiosity is the foundation of understanding, and a bedrock of personal relationships. There is power in curiosity, in allowing ourselves to be drawn to that which we find intriguing, in finding novelty and meaning in experiences both new and familiar.
“Ask and ask until nothing’s left to ask,” Un says. What does genuine curiosity mean to you? If you were to allow your curiosity to explore, where would it lead you?
