Part of the secret to creating a career that lights you up is staying energized and fresh for the long haul. It's too easy to fall into a rut that starts to slowly leech the energy out of you until one day you realize that your journey just doesn't have the same oomph it once had.
A great way to stay fresh and interested is taking an exploratory approach to the world around you. If we stop seeing the wonder in the world, it's not because that wonder has disappeared, but because we've forgotten to keep looking for it.
I'll let you hop on over there to read the full set, but a couple of my favorites are:
- Always be looking (notice the ground beneath your feet.)
- Everything is interesting. Look closer.
- Notice patterns. Make connections.
- Observe movement.
All the ideas are simple and immediately applicable. It all boils down to stopping and paying attention, and applying a liberal dose of curiosity to your life today - and then doing it again tomorrow.
So what are you waiting for? Don't you have some exploring to do?!
