Blind Spots and Curiosity

Our knowledge, experience, and accomplishments make us valuable. These give us the confidence and drive to tackle new challenges. However, this valuable knowledge and experience may not be useful and relevant to a new situation. And we may face setbacks and reach dead ends if we are not curious to understand the constraints of the new reality and pay attention to different opinions.

Without curiosity, we may get stuck and keep expanding our blind spots. As a result, we may miss out on valuable learnings, new opportunities, and possible solutions towards the right direction. We may also make incorrect judgements, and harm relationships.

Curiosity gives us the power to reduce our blind spots, keep our knowledge and experience relevant, create meaningful impact, and make us more valued and respected within our team and organization.
