Whatever it is, best follow it. Cultivating and honoring your innate curiosities about the world, life, society and yourself brings you closer to your true work and encourages the emergence of true self.
Many folks that I look up to and admire for their contributions valued curiosity—letting the mind be free, to pursue its interests & engage with life! People often attribute their success or accomplishments to the fact that they’re so danged curious and pursued an important question—and less about their actual abilities or other advantages.
For me—I’m really curious about the human condition and how working with plants relates to our architecture of the future. Likewise, I’m extremely interested in the mysteries of human origins and dynamics of interspecies relationships/communication. I’m also curious about the implications of design processes for this work.
Honestly, I don’t quite know sometimes how that fits into my activities or professional direction, but that doesn’t matter. Letting the important and deep questions unfold is what I’m going for. It’ll come together at some point.
If you’re bored, you’ve become distant from what makes you curious, excited & geeking out about life. And I think you should work on reconnecting to your curiosity and passion.
What does make you curious, and how’s that reflected in your work?
I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious. -Albert Einstein
