As a result, creative leaders are more comfortable with uncertainty, faster problem solvers with limited information, and see opportunities when others see challenges.
You may start to question why certain things are done a certain way.
You may begin to observe that you like certain things, and dislike others.
You may discover that certain things energize you, while others do not.
You may start to experiment with different approaches or perspectives.
You may start wondering, daydreaming and thinking.
As we get older, staying curious takes extra courage. At work or school, we're told that we need to know the correct answer and follow the correct path. So, we start focusing on knowing instead of wondering - which makes taking a moment to be curious feel more daunting. Courage helps us to try something different—even if we may not like the result.
When you tap into curiosity and courage with patience and openness, you realize there are new ways of doing everything. Suddenly that barrier is the very opportunity to find innovative solutions. When others see black and white, you see limitless color. And the more you release your original way of thinking, the more you will tap into your unique creativity.
