For as long as I can remember, people have described me as curious. I used to drive my parents absolutely INSANE when I was small asking them “Wuzzat?” I had picked up the phrase from certain pink kangaroo of the same name (and habit) from Zoobilee Zoo. Children of the 80’s will know the show well, as a bunch of people dressed up as animals and their musical misadventures.
Here’s a video for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about:
Cheesy, I know, but I LOVED Zoobilee Zoo. Anyway, I digress.
Yesterday, we talked about time banks. And one thing that can be accomplished through time banks is skill sharing. Well an online platform Skillshare specializes in the sharing of expertise among people – all for free. They are one of the top start-ups to watch in 2012. So when they sent me a message including a link to the video below, celebrating curiosity I just had to share it.
Inspiring stuff right? My boss once told me to be successful in public relations you had to have two things. You have to be a good writer and you have to be curious, because when you’re in PR you learn about a lot of things, but rarely do you become an expert in something. I think that becoming a good writer is a lifelong endeavor, but being curious I have down pat. Tomorrow we’ll talk more about just how curious I am, and how you can satisfy your curiousity.
Until then, stay curious my friends.
