Thoughts on Curiosity

One of my favorite blogs is written by Seth Godin.  Today, there is a really interesting short video on curiosity.  I really connected with this video, and I think it fits in well with all of our 101 goals projects.  The point of the 101 goals in 1001 days project is to be curious and to get what we want out of life.  I think this video effectively makes us think about why it’s important to be curious and the consequences of what happens if we choose to not be curious.

I read a second blog article yesterday from Zen Habits on defeating resistance.  I think this ties in well with Seth Godin’s video.  Both have made me question WHY I haven’t moved forward on some of my goals.  Today, I’m doing my best to keep these in mind, and just do things.  I followed Leo’s advice from Zen Habits, and printed out a paper for my desk that says “Defeat Resistance.”  I hope this provides the constant reminder I need to move forward with a few things I have been afraid to move forward with.  I think I’ve realized that a few of my goals I haven’t completed yet because I’m afraid of what will happen if I do.  I might actually be successful, I might have more things to do, and I might have more responsibilities.  I need to move ahead and discover in myself how to defeat these resistances in order to fulfill things I want in my own life.
