So these experiences did a number of things for me. They reinvigorated my sense of learning, but they made the learning applicable. We see that top performers follow their curiosity, not just in business but in life. (Joe Sanok)
Being curious can be a period in the day that you step into and out of for a few moments, but it can also exist on a larger scale and be a mindset that you utilize.
Pursuing curiosity means to follow your interests, your passions, things that interest you, that you think are good for you, that may seem outlandish but are still attractive for some reason; observe them all.
Allowing yourself to be curious means that you place learning and fun at the forefront, and leave concern for outward appearances and judgments at the door.
An outsider’s perspective
Top people put themselves in outsider positions where they are the minority, where they are uncomfortable. (Joe Sanok)
Put yourself in positions where you are in the minority and are pushed to observe instead of react because it will enrich your skills and broaden your approaches to life and your business.
When you place the spotlight on other issues and people and decenter yourself, you enable yourself to become a more empathetic and skilled leader.
It’s interesting how this tendency towards being an outsider, thinking like an outsider, and understanding outsiders really is one of the top things that you can do for your business as well as for your life. (Joe Sanok)
An ability to move on it
Being able to move on getting something done is often a lot more important – and impactful – than spending so much time getting it perfect.
Often in life, the emphasis is placed on something being perfect, however, perfection does not serve a purpose. It is not practical or usable.
If you find yourself holding back because you are nervous about something not being perfect, push past that feeling and do it anyway. You cannot make your 50th without making your first, so rather have your service, product, or hobby be real than hypothetical. The refining will come with practice, but the practice needs to first exist for it to be refined.
Taking agency from Thursday Is The New Friday podcast
For the first time, this shift from industrialist to self-agent allows us to bring our own lives into the question of how we work.
I want to decide what my life looks like and that carries over into so many different domains. It carries over into my parenting, it carries over into how I run my finances, it carries over into all sorts of choices that I make, where I say, “I’m not just going to let the way the world does it be how it defines who I am.” (Joe Sanok)
Be intentional with your time, because you have more power and autonomy over your life than you may realize.
