When asked what Team-Purpose-Family means to me, these words come to mind.

Resilience + Courage + Commitment + Curious

This is about Curiosity.

Have you ever looked under a rock to see what is there?

You are my audience! The curious ones. Those who ask WHY?

Why is curiosity important?

Being curious implies engagement, interest, and eagerness to look further.

Eagerness to know or learn something unfamiliar.

What makes the clock tick?

So, the clock is disassembled to find out. Not always successful in reassembling.

Curiosity asks "What if?"

Being curious creates thinking.

Curiosity looks beyond our traditional state to a new view of how things look, function, and work.

Curiosity does not remain the same.

Curiosity moves to change!

Change is an opportunity to continue to learn, ask more questions, and stay engaged.

Curiosity is genuinely interested in both the positive and negative effects of changes. Learning from the past and proposing how to make the future better.

Curiosity can set a positive tone for the rest of the team. The team is likely to surround themselves with people as curious as they are.

Change is exciting for curious people.

Albert Einstein once said,

“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”

What is under a rock? Maybe something interesting.

Curious completes the value equation.

Resilience + Courage + Commitment + Curious

For those who are curious, earlier newsletters express thoughts about resilience, courage, and commitment.

Good article Dan! Your example of taking the watch apart to see how it works really struck home and reminded me of all the different things I took apart as a child to see how they worked and ultimately to make them better. Yes, I ruined a watch or 2, but I also fixed the occasional clock. Other items that come to mind are bicycles, slot cars, my neighbor's new peddal car (boy were his parents mad!), my japanese-made transister radio (I was 7), my 78 rpm record player, then graduated to my parents 33-1/3 rpm Hi-Fi system (I turned it into a distributed speaker system around the house. Impedence? what impedence?) I was maybe 8 by then. I eve…

Nice touch! I was scratching my head like I've heard this part before somewhere... love the flow of deliverables.
