 It means stepping back and pushing aside preconceptions while utilizing your native wisdom—all the things that have become natural through years of living, trying, and making. It’s like a mental time machine transporting you back to a point of open curiosity but with a higher level of wisdom.
“I don’t know anything.” It might seem counterintuitive but I try to tell myself this every day when I wake up. It’s quickly becoming my daily mantra.  Now, this isn’t ...

Curiosity Circles  - 
 
Curiosity is key.
“Curiosity turns out to be a quiet superpower that all of us have. You don’t need an Ivy League education to use it, you don’t need a high-speed Internet connection. What’s curiosity done for you lately? We’re betting it hasn’t done enough.”

NotKnowing  - 
 
The built-in features of our brains, and the life experiences we accumulate, do in fact fill our heads with immense knowledge; what they do not confer is insight into the dimensions of our ignorance. As such, wisdom may not involve facts and formulas so much as the ability to recognize when a limit has been reached. Stumbling through all our cognitive clutter just to recognize a true “I don’t know” may not constitute failure as much as it does an enviable success, a crucial signpost that shows us we are traveling in the right direction toward the truth.
The trouble with ignorance is that it feels so much like expertise. A leading researcher on the psychology of human wrongness sets us straight.

Take a step in a direction that’s unknown. Try something new. Start a project that makes you scared. Allow yourself to feel some of the discomfort that accompanies a new, uncertain experience. It’s the only way to take flight.
Thomas Selfridge bears the unfortunate distinction of "first person to die in an airplane crash." This is his story.

 "I talk to other people. I seek out their perspective and experience and stories, and by doing that I multiply my own experience a thousandfold."
Ever wonder what curiosity can do for you? Author Warren Berger looks at how the tendency to wonder is a secret to success.

Really cool! Looks like a generalist- kind of approach!
For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.
