Dear Curious Minds Listener,
One of my favorite parts of hosting Curious Minds is that, each week, listeners reach out to share insights about the show. It could be through an email or a tweet or a LinkedIn message. No matter how they find me, I love hearing which guests they enjoyed and how they’re applying what they’ve learned. These are the reasons I do the show!
Recently, it occurred to me that you might enjoy reading these stories, too. In fact, more than one of my guests has talked about the enormous value of this kind of peer-to-peer learning:
- In episode 24, Wharton Professor Adam Grant points out that learning from like-minded peers is one of the most important ways we get better at what we do.
- In episode 29, INSEAD Professor and leadership expert Herminia Ibarra explains how building diverse networks helps us grow.
- In episode 8, Mona Patel, entrepreneur and design expert, discusses how applying new ideas and skills to solving problems helps us reframe.
So from now on, I’ll be sharing listener stories in my blog posts from time to time. (If you’re not currently subscribed, you can easily do so by going to this page and then clicking on “subscribe.”)
If you have a story to share, don’t hesitate to reach out. Let me know which episodes resonate the most and why. And let me know how you plan to apply what you’ve learned.
As always, thanks for listening. As Cal Newport and Matthew B. Crawford have shared, your attention is one of your most valuable possessions. I greatly appreciate your using it to listen to the podcast.
