A Life Changing Question

I was at a conference a couple of years ago.

Seth Godin was speaking.

I like Seth Godin.

Seth Godin asked the following question below:

Is your agenda about mediocre obedience or relentless curiosity?

I still think about this question.

Sometimes a great question is better than a great answer.

This question helps to define our current reality and our inevitable future.

What is your agenda?

  • Scott, that is a great question.I’m afraid that many people would love relentless curiosity but are pulled by organizations to the other two. We strain to get out of the box and there’s such a pull back inside. Only those leaders who see the value of this curiosity will see life changing results in their organizations, products and ultimately their people. Paul was right, those of us who want to make a difference must press on toward the prize.
    Thanks for a great post and reminder.

      Thanks for that Paul reminder… Well said!

    This is really good stuff, Scott. Definitely something I have to remind myself often. Thanks for writing this post.

  • Scott Williams

    Thanks Jeremy… sometimes its the simple things.

  • LOVE this post! My agenda is definitely about relentless curiosity. And I love the “Go Make something happen.” Haven’t felt that I’m achieving this with my blog. It’s time to Go and MAKE something happen!
    Thank you for the great question:)

      Thx for the comment… The relentless curiosity is in our hands.

  • Absolutely! Relentless curiosity keeps us moving outside ourselves into the other…into the world to discover beauty, generosity, courage…the things that inspire and help us tell our story better. Relentless curiosity keeps my momentum going and keeps me connected with others.

    • Scott Williams

      I agree, I’m not sure why curiosity killed the cat. đŸ™‚

  • Wow! That is good. Seth Godin is the man, as well as you are Scott. Thanks for sharing.

    • Scott Williams

      It really is profound.

  • super duper great question!

    go win. heady

  • This is a great point which I feel can be interpreted as are you actually working on YOUR passion? Not someone else’s! The agenda I am on is to be able to positively affect the fitness industry by treating the customers and the staff like they are royalty because they are. And it is just like seth godin says to be remarkable…is it not amazing that by doing something as common sense like caring about people is now considered remarkable? Either way I plan on doing it because it is my passion and I love to put a smile on people’s face!
