Today is the first day of Interesting vs Interested week.

Interesting vs Interested – A couple of weeks ago Mikey and I decided that we will take turns and pick one success principle per week and live each moment of every day by applying that principle.

At the end of each day we reflect the day’s learnings and share our interesting vs interested experiences.

These success principles are taught by Marshall Thurber in the Future of Business workshop. Marshall Thurber a successful businessman, visionary and public speaker. A list of his students includes such success stories as Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen of Chicken Soup for the Soul fame, Tony Robbins, and Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad).

If I want to be interesting then be interested

What I love about this principle is how much it challenged my limiting belief that I should mind my own business, something I picked up at an early age.

As a child I remember being interested in people and things. I would ask questions and made friends really easily.

I realised that in business context I wasn’t interested in my clients, by asking questions, actively listen and be open.

If I want to be interesting then be interested.

My Goal

I want to be get back at being genuinely interested in the people in my life. My goal is to practise this principle and learn the “ask – listen – open” process.

The learning here could be to know the right question to ask. I’ll know more as the day goes by post my learning.
