Stay Curious

stay curiousLearned a great lesson from my friend Kris Ward yesterday.  a great reminder, I guess would be more accurate.

Her message is simple and eternal.  The message is this:  Stay Curious.

Life can throw some curveballs sometimes.  You can plan, you can work hard, you can do everything right… and then some force comes along that throws everything wildly “off target”.  Kris’ message is that it is at times like these that it is especially beneficial to stay curious.  What does the new “setback” offer as far as opporunity?  What new doors does it open that didn’t exist before?

It’s a mental shift, for sure.  It can be tough to have your plans changed for you.  But I know, without question, that each setback offers us three brilliant opportunities:

  1. A lesson to be learned
  2. Knowledge to be gained
  3. Opportunities to be pursued

It’s important to always keep in mind the old adage “It’s not the end of the world.”  Life goes on; this isn’t the end game.  Learn, grow, pursue new opportunities.  Have fun with it; life’s too short to be lived any other way.
