What kills my curiosity?
- Being busy. Avoiding or not making time and space to think, practice, or play.
- Avoiding challenges.
- Only skimming and scanning, and not thinking about what I read and see.
- Worrying about the results and not enjoying the process.
- Not writing down my thoughts, reactions, and questions.
- Not sketching ideas.
- Not listening to or having time for interesting people.
- Keeping thoughts to myself. Or, wasting time with people who do not listen.
- Not trying anything new, or not looking at routines and habits in a new way.
- Not asking questions. Or, trying to find answers too quickly.
- Missing connections, or ignoring them.
- Repeatedly ignoring those fascinations that keep me wondering.
