Lead with curiosity

There is a difference between the pursuit of how versus the pursuit of what

It’s difference between learning to code and building an app. 

It’s the difference between learning video editing and making a film. 

It’s the difference between learning to run and becoming physically fit. 

In most cases it’s really hard to continue learning the how — how to code, how to edit videos, how to run — for its own sake. 

Try leading with curiosity instead and figure out what things you really care about: imagine an app you’d like to build, a film you’d like to make, or a certain level of physical health you’d like to achieve. 

When you are clear on what you’re working towards, you will have exponentially much more energy to figure things out.
