Raise Your Curiosity Quotient (CQ) – 9/3

Sep 8, 2020 | SMART.remark

At a time when companies and individuals are expected, more than ever, to innovate and adapt to volatile market conditions, curiosity has become a highly valued skill.  To reach for new and creative solutions, we first must be a little curious. I wonder…What if…Why not…?

Curiosity Quotient – “The ability and motivation to learn and to make sense of the world around us in new and innovative ways.”  This ability may come more naturally to some of us than others, but there are actionable steps we can all take to strengthen our CQ. Let’s start with:

  • Become an Early Adopter – Don’t’ be afraid to try something really new.  Every new experience challenges you to think a little differently.
  • Don’t Let Success Stop You from Innovating – Take a fresh look at the everyday to gain new insights and uncover opportunities to save time and money.
  • Broaden Your Comfort Zone – Push your boundaries to learn more, see more and interact more with those outside your usual realm.

The linked article offers some solid advice in this area and provides important detail.  Please check out the full article.
