In the end,it is important to remember that we can not become what we need to be by remaining what we are.(Leadership is an art -Max De Pree)
I have been told that I have a restless mind and probably some people who know me will agree with the statement as I am easy to engage in topics of wide interest and I could suddenly become inquisitive by default. I am an eager learner and I believe that we could constantly learn something if we take the time to listen more or even take the time to read articles and topics of own interest. Once the conversation started, a whole new world could emerged. We live in a society where social media become the new online library and different forums and portal become the new friends’ channels. Therein the attention to read something and put the idea into practice it succumb the sub existence that we have to shit the paradigm into a specific purpose.
The road to here
Thank to LinkedIn and other social media we can easily identify sources of communication and learning. The vital role to succumb the learning process to the new level encompassed both engagement and communication: thinking about what we learn and not at last to put in practice the lesson learnt. Although learning curve has lots of depths it also requires attention, focus, personal strength, a clear development plan and the list could be endless. Heuristically lots of people use PDP as a learning tool where they designed their own SWOT analysis hence to know where their stand in term of personal development. Herein I don’t want to juxtapose the need the personal learning but rather to undress the phenomena why we need to shift into a purpose. Why do we need a purpose as such? Why do we need to question everything? Well, to be honest I enlist couple of ideas and it is totally up to you to pick what relates to you. My post is not designed to fit exactly into your purpose by rather to give you some insights.By all means the choice is totally yours.Being inquisitive creates the badass phenomena or it could be classified as being erratically irrational or polymorphic mad by nature? A life without curiosity is quite simply a boring life. It’s the power of the curious mind that has made humans as advanced and as imaginative as we find ourselves today. Perhaps the following quotes can spark your own curiosity:
“The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”― T.H. White, The Once and Future King
So beautiful isn’t it? The dismissal science of purpose; The demise of human existence. Two strands of the new humanism sweeping process and each of them gets a new fresh treatment by each of us.I don’t know about you but for me the best known nudge is automatic enrollment into the learning and devouring each piece of information available to me.I am attracted to the quirks of human knowledge,full stop.As long as your mind remains inquisitive and want to have a purpose you will have the ability to improve.Being able to relate stories and share knowledge has an immense advantage in improving our ability to learn. They are types of people that make a huge difference in our life and the one word that I think of when I think of either one of them is “sponge”. They soak in everything they can, but eventually they release they learn and share it with others.They also do not learn only from people that are “above” them in the organizational hierarchy, but they learn from every person they interact with. They focus not only on the knowledge of that person, but they soak in the characteristics of that person and learn about them as people, which is imperative in the change process.Even when they disagree, they don’t jump in and start defending their beliefs, they continue to listen. They think. They absorb. They think of what they are learning, how they can adapt it, and how they can share.Learning takes a back-bone to stand up for what you believe in, but it also is imperative to focus on what you can do better. Being in here and being able to share these inshight with you ,give me the ability to shift into my purpose.I am here to learn,to engage into a world full of knowledge and make a better word.For a start ,I am a newbie but together we are a whole and we can make the difference therein we can shift into a purpose,right?
