My clients often ask 'what should I write about' when it comes to showcasing what they know. In the HBR article below Albert Einstein famous quote sums it up:
“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” Albert Einstein
We are unique in the way we think, in our experiences and what we know.
It may be the one thing we have over the robots! Robots cannot replicate that breadth and randomness of our curiousity (yet). They do not have the capacity to be curious about anything and everything.
My advice - be curious, discover and share what you find out with those you know.
Curiosity has been hailed as one of the most critical competencies for the modern workplace. It’s been shown to boost people’s employability. Countries with higher curiosity enjoy more economic and political freedom, as well as higher GDPs. It is therefore not surprising that, as future jobs become less predictable, a growing number of organizations will hire individuals based on what they could learn, rather than on what they already know.
Of course, people’s careers are still largely dependent on their academic achievements, which are (at least partly) a result of their curiosity. Since no skill can be learned without a minimum level of interest, curiosity may be considered one of the critical foundations of talent. As Albert Einstein famously noted, “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”
