Weekly Insight 8: The love of learning stems from exercising the power to be curious.
A very important distinction is made in the podcast about the curiosity of the novice and the curiosity of the master. The former is prone to the Dunning-Kruger effect and it is the one that is more dangerous. The curiosity of the master is one where there is an elevation of knowledge only through programmatic failure.
Very interesting. Organizations should use the curiosity and learning as the baseline and empower the leaders to define the learning standards without a direct mapping of the learning goals to their work. They should provide the incentives to the teams for their curiosity and not for the work.

I'm particularly drawn to #3 about creatives coming together in our curiosity to create a future we want. In our homeschooling and in my work we find that to be consistently, purposefully, and systematically curious requires quite a lot of effort. We use particular methods, perspectives, and tools. Evaluative thinking, adaptive action, and facets of systems thinking come to mind. Thanks for the writing.
