How I Topped Up My Curiosity Quotient and The Benefits I Got
I have just returned from a long weekend at Boodjamulla National Park (340 km northwest of Mt Isa in Queensland, Australia). The weekend involved a combination of walking; canoeing; boating; learning and meeting new people (as well as a lot of driving on unsealed roads). This was the perfect opportunity to top up my Curiosity Quotient (CQ).
I had found work and life had depleted my CQ. The symptoms of this depletion included: a lack of ideas; reduction in my desire to learn; a leaning towards routine and simple tasks; and a feeling of unease with ambiguous situations. It was time to take action – to “top up my CQ”.
