Odin & The Penguin – Retaining Curiosity
Our house recently acquired a puppy. Please note that I did not say “bought” a puppy. Our son, Andrew, bought a puppy.
It seems as if there would be a big difference between us buying a dog and our son buying a dog.
Not so much. Odin is at our house.
The penguin picture made me think of the way curiosity is at the leading edge of how young people, dogs, penguins, learn. Odin is interested in everything. He’s learning every second.
When do we lose that hunger for curiosity? How much greater could our impact on those we serve be magnified if we retained that desire to learn about them?
Here’s your homework assignment. Be curious. Ask questions. Lean into the person or thing in front of you.
And if you have any ideas on how to convince a golden doodle to stop licking my face, please get back to me.
