Conceptualizing Curiosity

I’ve got some new concepts from Todd Kashdan‘s Curious?: Discover the Missing Ingredient to a Fulfilling Life to share with you. To start, we have the idea that only in the present do we have the freedom to live our lives:

Next, how the story line of curiosity leads to competence, mastery, and a more meaningful life:

As any lover of learning knows, the more you learn, the more questions you have about the world, and the more you want to find the answers to those questions:

What you don’t know…might give you pleasure! (I’m this way with movies – I want to know as little as possible prior to watching)

The sketches above are part of a project titled One Card One Concept in which I attempt to sketch out individual concepts onto 3×5 note cards in an effort to both understand those concepts better and enhance my ability to recall them in the future.  I hope you find these sketches interesting and maybe even a bit useful.
