“Why not try to answer a few questions you’ve never asked before?” – Futurist Jim Carroll
Serendipity is a wonderful thing, but you might never find it if you don’t have a mindset that fosters that type of moment!
One of the most important things you can do to help accomplish this is to allow yourself a mindset of relentless curiosity, radical exploration, and continuous discovery. It’s by setting out to know about the things that you don’t know about that you can discover new things that you should know about. It’s about chasing the knowledge that you don’t have so that you might have new knowledge you know nothing about – so that you will discover new things. It’s by exploring the things you’ve never done before that you will discover the things you could be doing that you knew nothing about!
Deconstruct those sentences. I’ll wait.
I’m a big believer in wasting time on frivolous things because that is one of the most important methods of moving forward in a world that is continually changing. That’s why I subscribe to the idea that in order to succeed, you must learn the knowledge that does not yet exist on topics not yet in existence based on ideas not yet discovered with concepts that no one has yet to recognize – and you need to do this yesterday! I’m a big believer in the idea that this type of mindset can accelerate your future, and that you can do so by turning on your innovation engine, firing your creativity thrusters, and strapping in for a rocket ride into your faster future. You need to accelerate your ability to generate radical new ideas and transformative concepts. You need innovation and creativity!
All of that might be an epic word salad to try to digest on a Monday, but it’s a good mindset to start a new week!
