“Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish”, those were the words of the immortal Steve Jobs at the commencement speech at Stanford University in 2005.
Over time, I have come to understand that the bases of every achievement in this cycle we call Life are embedded in that phrase. It was true then, It is still true now, it will be true tomorrow and the day after.
A lot of emphasis has been placed on Learning, cliches here and there about the importance of Learning.
But how do You become a good Learner without Curiosity?
Show me a good Learner and I will show You someone who is notoriously curious, has a voracious appetite for what there is to Learn and is not afraid to look foolish.
I am used to looking very foolish, at least for the first 5 minutes, afterwards, I will never be foolish on that topic again.
If I have a time machine, I will take a trip to the future, I and my Son sitting down in the lobby of our Mansion, having Father and Son discussions, should my Son ask me for an advise about Life, You know what it will be?,Your guess was right “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish, Stay Curious”, very soon, the world will call You wise.
Unfortunately, I do not own a time machine and I wont waste this advice so here is my Two Cents to You,
“Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish, Stay Curious”
