FastFulcrum: Cultivating Curiosity (Course III)

Evans Mehew · March 17, 2016

“I found the Cultivating Curiosity segment to be particularly freeing. I no longer view my curiosity as a passing distraction, something I must curtail. I now allow my curiosity to take me to places where I can learn and understand a variety of interests. By doing that, I’m using my curiosity as a tool to remain relevant in this ever-changing world. That’s just one of the skills I’ve developed thanks to these sessions.” ~ Valerie H., FastFulcrum student

“The main topic I gained from this course is the difference between ‘conventional’ and ‘integrative’ thinking. The readings do a great job of showing examples of the two types and how to recognize them, seeing the differences are amazing. Throughout this course the integrative style is broken into  sections and gives examples of how people and businesses have been successful with them. As with the previous courses I was able to use my IKIGAI, SWOT and PEST models to see my level of curiosity.” ~ Bob G., FastFulcrum student

Cultivating Curiosity (Course III)

Curiosity is far more than something that meanders into our field of attention from time to time … rather, it is a critical skill essential to survival in the Age of Automation. Curiosity can be honed, habitually crafted and leveraged to your advantage. In order to take on new abilities and explore advantageous avenues of development, one must first be curious about the elements comprising these things. Cultivating Curiosity helps the student to become aware of and to cultivate these abilities so that they may remain relevant in the Age of Automation.
