Podcast Episode 7: Don’t Be Passionate. Get Curious

We’re a full week into 21 Days to Kick Start Your Best Life. If you haven’t already, make sure to subscribe on iTunes so that you don’t miss an episode!

Today’s episode is interesting in that I had it scheduled for next week, but a text from a friend reminded me how important this topic really is.


We get regularly bombarded with three dangerous words – Find Your Passion or Follow Your Passion. I actually think this is garbage. What about the billions (and I do mean billions) of people around the world that don’t have a passion? 

Or listen on Apple PodcastsStitcherGoogle Play or Podbean.

Make sure to listen as I share a story from my travels, in which you realize that the majority of the world don’t have passions, hobbies or even extra time in their day.

We also talk about the benefits, health and otherwise, of fostering curiosity in your life. Scientific, and all!

Today’s Challenge:

Pick a topic that interests you and find three new sources of information on it (i.e. podcast, blog post, website, interview, magazine article, etc.)

Some great questions to ask as you delve into the topic of your choice are along the Who/What/Where/When/Why/How route. For example:

  • Why do we do this the way we do it? Can it be done another way?
  • What is the purpose of this? Can it be used for something different?
  • Who invented this? Who is the thought leader for this topic?
  • How can I apply what I’m learning to my own life? How can I use what I’ve learned to help others?
  • When did this topic become relevant and why?
  • Where can I learn more?

That’s it! It’s all about fostering your curiosity.

I’d love to hear about what topic you dive into, so make sure to tag a picture or a post on social with @girltrieslife and use #girltrieslife21 so that the whole community can see what you’re up to. Who knows, one person’s topic might spark interest for another person.

See you tomorrow!
