Curiosity may have killed the cat, but if you could visit him in cat heaven he would likely tell you, “I was having a ball right up to the point where, well, I don’t remember what hit me.”
Being curious by nature or developing your curiosity is a good step to take if you want to be a more creative public speaker.
If you don’t remember how to be curious, ask any preschooler or kindergartener nearby. Or better yet, just watch them. I have one living at home with me. She’s a great teacher.
Why are things the way they are? What made that happen? What is that company going to do next? What happens if I do this?
Ask questions. Wonder out loud. Take a different road to see where it leads.
My wife and I were visiting a church one night for the first time. We followed a woman who definitely was walking with a purpose. We figured she knew where she was going. She was – to the bathroom!
We backtracked and eventually found our way. But we then knew where the bathrooms were just in case.
Being inquisitive, observant, curious, interested in the new or unknown will all give you new ideas that you have never thought of = make you more creative.
Ask yourself a question you do NOT know the answer to. Then go find the answer. It works for increasing your creativity.
