Where would we be if Thomas Edison, Leonardo da Vinci or Albert Einstein hadn’t been curious? By being curious you will be able to see new worlds and possibilities which are normally not visible. Your mind is like a muscle which becomes stronger through continual exercise. The mental exercise caused by curiosity makes your mind stronger and stronger.
Reading widely and following the leading thinkers in your industry is a good way of keeping up with current trends. Experts’ blogs, Twitter feeds and conferences, for example, can be a great mine of ideas and knowledge if you’re trying to future-proof your skills and career. Volunteering also helps you expand contacts and broaden your experience.
