episode #504 – July 30, 2020

GUEST: Ryan Stanley | RyanStanley.Com

It is human nature to be judgmental, to look at things which are different and judge them good or bad.

the episode

What is the difference between judgement and curiosity?  Actually, they’re two sides of the same coin.  They occur as we recognize that something is different from how we’d like it to be or just different from what we’re used to.

Judgment is what we typically do as human beings. We recognize something as either better or worse, good or bad. Where as curiosity is just looking to see what the differences are.  Our guest, Ryan Stanley explains that choosing to be curious opens us up to so much more opportunity as we ask the questions which help us improve instaed of focusing on just the current state. 

KEY TAKEAWAY:  The simple act of learning to say “what could I do”  instead of “what should I do” can completely change your approach to problems and situations helping you plan your strategy for improvement.
