This week’s Escape Plan challenge (aka our Tip of the Week), is #29: Just Like George. Ask an expert something you are curious about in his/her field.
Ironically, two years ago today Jason and I celebrated his 30th birthday by going to see “Curious George” in the theaters. (Yes, today’s Jason’s birthday! Woo Hoo!) That mischievous little monkey can teach us a lot about being more curious. Another animal known for curiosity is the cat.

I have to admit, I’ve always been more of a dog person than a cat lover. I do admire their curious nature, though. As adults we often stop asking “why” (aka the three-year-old’s favorite three letter word). Maybe we’ll look dumb if we ask, or show that we didn’t do our homework. The real danger comes when you stop asking, however.
Take a few moments to think about something you are curious about. Then… ask an expert. People LOVE to share what they are passionate about! The simple task of asking a question can bring about amazing outcomes.
