Manifest Curiosity Part III: 8 Guiding Questions

This post is the first in a series of posts from Manifest Curiosity that details they hows, whens, and whys of Curiosity Based Learning.


8 Guiding Questions


Instead of following traditional mission or vision statements, What If Curiosity operates under and continues to be guided by eight central questions. These questions allow us to reflect on the past, focus on the present, and prepare for the future all at the same time. In doing so, What If Curiosity is able to maximize the impact of its actions.


Since the 8 Guiding Questions also guide the design and execution of What If Curiosity’s Curiosity Based Learning, anyone who uses Curiosity Based Learning can easily apply them to anything they do.


8 Guiding Questions


  1. What if curiosity is a natural resource that can be converted into an energy?

  2. What if you want to change the World, you have to start changing the world?

  3. What if you can think it, you can do it?

  4. What if collaborative competition beats zero sum every time?

  5. What if there is always a better way?

  6. What if there are no problems, only opportunities?

  7. What if our expectations are the box?

  8. What if curiosity is the beginning to all great innovation?


Each question is designed to be evergreen in that it has no direct or obvious answer. In fact, each question should beg deeper thinking, discussion, and discovery over answer seeking and reporting.


Collaborative Approach to Curiosity-Driven Actions


A critical feature of how What If Curiosity applies its Curiosity Based Learning is that it is collaborative and results in action. At every point in executing the 8 Core Processes of Curiosity Based Learning, collaboration is required and no process is fully completed until actions developed from that collaboration are taken.
