4 Manifestos To Live By… In Summary: Be Curious

Manifesto: a new idea with prescriptive notions for carrying out change.

A Manifesto for Curiosity

Where do manifestos lead us? The ones that are directive and certain never take us to their supposed destination. The ones that are open-minded and generous and forgiving – they take us where we need to go. Destination uncertain, but worthwhile.

The easiest way to summarize my manifesto is to volunteer this: Be curious.curious

In my 40s I am rediscovering my curiosity, alongside my children, and just at the right time. The future belongs to the curious. I hope my kids never lose the gift.

This is a lovely way to imagine it (hat tip to the incomparable @brainpickings):

“We are all lifelong learners, from day one to twenty-thousand-and-one, and that’s why we keep exploring, wondering and discovering, yearning and learning, reaching with more than just our hands… The future belongs to the curious.”
