I was reading a Yammer community social stream today on the topic of ‘working out loud,’ something I have engaged with at work (via yammer) and in this blog.
A theme within that circulated throughout the hour long discussion was the power of curiosity. Working out loud allows the curious to participate with you.
And, contrary to some opinion that ‘broadcasting’ your own stuff is self-centred / showing off, those that share are also curious – because they are inviting that feedback / co-creation. They want to learn and to grow.
Someone commented in the stream: “The best cure for fear is curiosity.” To which I appended a quote from Ellen Parr:
There is no cure for curiosity.
