I remember the first time I heard John Maxwell speak and he opened with “Hi, my name is John (smile, pause) and I’m your friend.” I became curious and wondered about the ‘WHY’ behind his words. I was curious, is this guy for real? Does he really want to be my friend?
Little did I know at the time that one day I would be sitting beside him and recording A Minute with Maxwell. It was my turn to ask John to share his insights on a word of MY choosing. I thought about the million questions I ask and how I love to learn new things. DONE, I had it, my word was CURIOUS.
On a scale of 1-10, just how curious are you?
Now think about a person you have known for at least 10 years. On a scale of 1-10 how curious are you today about them? Has the number increased or decreased with time?
For me, I am embarrassed to say that for those things I THOUGHT I KNEW, the number was significantly lower than those things I clearly didn’t know. That awareness enriched my relationships and now my life.
Listen to what my friend John has to say about Curiosity and sign up for more of his great wisdom.
