Curiously Curious.... slow down and log everything
Our agency mantra is all about being curious and taking that curiosity into the business realm for our clients. I have always kept a notebook/scrapbook/journal that I paste things in that interest me. But here is a great designer Ken Carbone who takes this to the next level. I found this video of him talking about what interests and motivates him to keep up to date with his journal. I love his view that by concentrating on the objective of his journal. It makes him slow down at exhibitions and in general life so he can truly take it in.
I have written about Paulo Coelhos view on slowing down when you are in foreign countries and how it allows you to draw real insight.
I definately think there is something in that. I need to get back to slowing down ocassionally to really take things in.
