I admire those with intellectual curiosity, it allows for constant growth in all areas of life. The desire to continuously learn, dissect, explore, and experience, which ultimately is the driving force behind all major discoveries.
Intellectual curiosity at work will allow you to rise to the top faster than anyone else. Spending countless hours studying the biggest clients, products, history, relationships, acquisitions and learning everything you can, will separate you from the pack. Trust me, it will pay off. As a business owner, every single person I hire is expected to surpass their superior and show exceptional curiosity.
Intellectual curiosity in life creates deeper relationships. Asking more questions, listening more and paying attention to others will display your curiosity as a sincere interest to develop a deeper connection.
In your next conversation be conscious of this trait. Intellectual Curiosity grants you the amazing ability to grow intellectually, socially, morally, and spiritually, so make sure you take advantage of it in every aspect of your life.
