Continuous curiosity leads to perseverance

»

There are times when you think "I would like to try out something new." You might wonder whether you would be capable enough or do it much better than you'd expected; a mixed feeling of anxiety and expectation. Let's assume you somehow manage to make up your mind and jump into the challenge.

Initially, in the chaos of nervousness and excitement, you can see only what's in front of you. In most cases, you wouldn't be able to do it well. However, if you continue, you'd experience your vision widening. What you could do well and what you couldn't do well would gradually become visible. Sometimes you'd do it well and get an adrenaline rush and it might become your motivation to continue.

Ironically, the more practice you have, the more problems you'd see, and the more difficult things would feel. As a result, the adrenaline hit becomes less frequent, and you might hit a wall. Of course, as a person of strong will, you'd continue to practice. Eventually, you'd achieve the presence of mind. Routines and breaks are helpful. Occasionally, you'd break through the wall. The good news is when you break through the wall, you gain a higher level of view.

At the higher level of view, you can see the things you do well, and the things you don't do well. If you know what you don't do well, it's still easy. However, in most cases, you have a tough time even being aware of what you aren't doing well. No matter how tough, you want to continue the process. It is because you want to gain a higher view and see things you have never seen. Curiosity is a main component of perseverance.

This applies to any area; your hobbies, sports, art, music, cooking, studying, etc. In many cases, you'd stop the process if you didn't have good a teacher, healthy competition rivals, or luck. You might find more interesting things besides what you have been trying. Business is no exception. Continuous curiosity is the biggest challenge in the workplace.

Continuous curiosity is the key to constructive growth. It is the eagerness to gain a higher view and see things we have never seen. That's why leaders must set upward goals for everyone. Upon achieving a goal, higher views could be shared among all. "Continuous curiosity leads to perseverance" applies to business too.
