I finished the most amazing book yesterday, all about the power of curiosity. The author spent the whole book talking about how his curiosity conversations have lead him to speaking with some of the most interesting people in the world, like Eminem, Fidel Castro, and President Obama. He had ice cream with Princess Diana. He works on the daily basis with some of the most famous people in Hollywood, all because he was curious enough to listen in on a conversation.
I listened to this book over the course of a week while driving to and from work and then while finishing up some coasters yesterday for an upcoming show. It was enthralling and engaging. The book allowed my mind to focus on the words while my hands were engaged in physical activity. The book sparked a lot of thoughts and ideas in my own head. Yes, curiosity too. Curiosity has always been a trait I have considered strong in myself, though not as strong as Brian Grazer.
Brian is an artist at being curious, taking it to a whole new level that I never knew could exist. He spends more time asking questions and listening to the answers than probably doing anything else. He is a master-class storyteller and has spent most of his life telling us those stories that curiosity have told him are worth making. One day, I would like to have a curiosity conversation with Brian, but I have to be honest, I have no idea how that conversation would go.
If you get a chance, you should read “A Curious Mind” By Brian Grazer.
This book has lead me to want to hold curiosity conversations of my own, both online and offline. Here is my first question. Please leave a reply below! I look forward to seeing your answers.
“What are you curious about?”
