Curiosity Leads to Cool Places

Be curious. That’s my advice for success. Maybe you won’t be rich or famous but if you’re curious at least you’ll never be bored.

Curiosity has led to great things. Everyone is talking about Steve Jobs, posting quotes and videos and my contribution to that was a quote from his famous Stanford University Commencement Speech: “Much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on.”

Curiosity led me to write a book. I don’t know how many people will buy it or read it but it’s something I had to do. I use hiking as a metaphor for life in the book. When hiking you can follow the trail markings and stay on the main trail all the time and still have fun and see some amazing things. But when you’re curious, you venture off the main trail and discover things most people won’t see.

Julie and I read about these caves in a hiking book and set out to find them. Along the way we found a shortcut that involved a little climbing but the challenge made it even more fun. For those of you will only a little time, the caves starts at 3:25 into the video.
