Pessimists lack curiosity. They miss opportunities to discover something new, to meet someone new, to read new books. On the other hand, optimists are curious about almost everything. Curiosity is the cornerstone of knowledge. The desire to learn is a way of controlling our ego, the temptation to think, “I know it all.” Acquiring skills, including technical ones, broadens our horizon and makes us happier.
Progressing rewards us for our efforts, counterbalancing setbacks and frustrations. Make great discoveries or set yourself small challenges. The crucial thing is to remain alert.
