Learn and be "Interesting"
I've never been a huge fan of the word "interesting" (too vague), but this post over at lifehack.org, "How to be Interesting," seemed to resonate nicely with something that drives CRI. The wrap-up distills it:
The similarity of all those ways are to increase your scope of thinking and knowledge, by jumping out from your comfort zone of knowledge.Putting it slightly differently, being interesting comes from being broadly educated, but that comes from continual learning, from making it a habit of exploring, experimenting, and welcoming challenge. The most interesting people never "get out of school." They understand what school is really about and strive to nourish that in their lives. Sadly, a great deal of what people think of when they hear the word "school" is far removed from their understanding of the word "interesting."
Do you want to be "interesting?" Develop the habit of learning and you will be.
