Einstein's "Holy Curiosity" and 3 Ways Amazement Can Change Your Life and Leadership Ability

Einstein's "Holy Curiosity" and 3 Ways Amazement Can Change Your Life and Leadership Ability | Learning + Leading in Healthcare | Scoop.it

Warren Berger's, A More Beautiful Question, draws a direct connection between curious inquiry and many of today’s most innovative entrepreneurs and designers. Design breakthroughs such as the Square credit card reader, Pandora internet radio, the Nest thermostat, and the business model for Airbnb all began with curious people wondering why a particular problem or human need existed—and how it might best be addressed. In today’s Silicon Valley, coming up with the right curious question can ultimately yield a payoff in the billions.

Warren Berger's "A More Beautiful Question" and this summarizing Fast Company article is required reading for leaders in our Deep Dive program--in our senior leadership deep dive into cultivating the capacity for Appreciative Inquiry into things that work, and give life, and inspire the future.

 

Who knew a little curiosity could accomplish so much?

Well, lots of people, actually. Decades ago, Einstein urged us to "never lose a holy curiosity," while Walt Disney proclaimed that curiosity was a key to his company’s success ("We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.")

 

More recently, there’s been a fresh wave of champions extolling the virtues of curiosity. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman has theorized that innovation is fueled, in part, by the "curiosity quotient" of innovators. The psychologist Todd Kashdan asserts that curiosity has all kinds of life-enhancing benefits, such as improving personal relationships. Author Ian Leslie’s recent book Curious contends that curiosity may be the "most valuable asset" of any society that aspires to progress and creativity.

This is an interesting article that came to me by way of my friend and fellow technical communicator, Barrie Byron. Some of these metrics are ones I could've guessed, and some are surprises to me. It's an interesting read. I know for myself, I'd have a hard time adhering to these "rules".

Still not sure it's ready for prime time (and I'm very certain that way too many folks believe so without even trying it), but as AR is the future of our interactive environment, it's sure cool to see what it is like and to get a taste of our future.

Great blog post by Greg Satell. 


Fave quotes:


"Strategy is no longer a game of chess.  We can’t think only in terms of planning and execution, but need to understand how information flows and cascades self-organize around strategic intent.  Hierarchy fails in the digital age not because it is illegitimate, but because it is slow and the world has become fast."


and


"Today, you gain power and capability not by increasing scale, but by deepening and widening connections."

I found this on LinkedIn, and of course mentions Princeton University, which is just up the road from me. 

 

I found this article rather intriguing, as the student looked at both traditional and alternative methods of learning, and found that in some cases, alternative methods yielded the same or better results than traditional methods. As a former online grad student, I can tell you that it was a little difficult, even as recently as two years ago, to convince people that my MSPTC from a brick-and-mortar school taken entirely online was as stringent and comprehensive as if I went to classes in person.  I still see alternative education as a viable method, but as this student points out, since many alternative methods don't issue a "degree", some sort of standard needs to be agreed upon by those supplying the alternative methods of learning to be able to provide a credential or "legitimize" the coursework taken.
