What kinds of curiosity have I identified so far?
- Existential curiosity (like The River)
- Mindful curiosity
- Desire-to-learn curiosity
- Interpersonal curiosity
What could I practice today on a day when I am so stressed out with a challenging new project I would most like to just go back to bed with a novel and a cup of tea and avoid the whole thing?
Just asking that question is helping me feel better. Mindful curiosity, I think, to calm down. Desire-to-learn curiosity to prepare for my telephone conference later today. Interpersonal curiosity for the call itself, I think. Not a day, apparently, for existential curiosity but rather for a bit more directiveness on my part.
