Pursuing Curiosity — The Peers Project
By The Peers Project — February 11, 2019
So many of us have forgotten what it’s like to be curious. We believe that it’s a sentiment only limited to childhood. We’ve forgotten what it’s like to learn and explore because we want to, and not because we have to. We’re so set in our traditional ways of thinking that we likely push aside the voice inside that dares to ask, ‘what if’ or ‘just try’.
But what if our curiosity is actually the secret to our success?
Our latest guest, Lindsay Rogers, wholeheartedly believes that her curiosity is her greatest strength. She attributes the accomplishments of her award-winning creative agency, to the curiosity of her team at large.
In Episode 40, Lindsay empowers us to give things a go irrespective of what others may think. Her down to earth nature and delightful stories, demonstrate how essential curiosity is in everything we do.
If you’re wondering how to fuel your creativity, create meaningful content and learn how to bring childlike curiosity back into your life, then this episode is not to be missed.
