rookie minds manifest
Living the rookie mind
We believe that real vibrancy comes when we keep looking at the world through rookie eyes. When we free ourselves from the conventions that constrain our truths, we can move organizations and humanity forwards and tackle our planet’s biggest challenges. All we need is the courage and determination to bring this perspective to work and choose the principles, values or ideals we are willing to fight for.
Rookie minds have the tender and essential ingredients to deal with the extraordinary opportunities that lie in front of us.
An insatiable curiosity, for instance. A thirst for knowledge and understanding. That unstoppable hunger to discover and learn that makes them lifelong students. When we feel free to wander and explore and learn to put assumptions aside, we can broader our perspectives and become wondrous again.
And then there is that plain humility. This involves accepting that you don’t know everything and the ability to be open to the perspectives of others. If we are able to recognize our own shortcomings and limitations, we can mobilize the expertise of others. Without being bothered by an excessive ego or any concern about status.
And finally, the courage to rumble with vulnerability. That means having the guts to show up in uncomfortable territory, where you can’t control the output. This includes learning to recover after setbacks, failures, and disappointments. After all, innovation and creativity cannot exist without them.
Imagine what happens if we tap into this beautiful, unencumbered mindset. When organizations create the space and get out of the way. Everybody will be able to contribute impassioned to something that really matters now!
