Being Curious (ENT03)


Description
You’ve heard the saying “Curiosity killed the cat,” right? But did you know that it actually has another line: “Satisfaction brought it back”? Being curious is often warned against, in case the outcome of that curiosity isn’t favorable. But for successful entrepreneurs, curiosity is vital, and satisfaction is the prize.

Curiosity is the thirst for knowledge. The desire to learn and understand new things, and to ask questions to figure out the “how” and, crucially, the “why.” It helps you expand your mind, challenge ideas, and find fresh thinking. It allows you to problem-solve more effectively and discover what might be possible, instead of just what’s feasible. And it’s an essential tool in your entrepreneur’s tool kit.

• Define the importance of being curious in entrepreneurship
