Ask [questions] as often as you advocate. — Christina Rosalie
Hone your hunches. — Christina Rosalie
Curiosity is more about helping you filling a patchwork of information about what you already know, it’s about pattern recognition, and connecting the dots between things. So when you’re trying to solve a problem, honing in on those little inklings where you have a hunch, and then building there and following the information, and asking questions that are actually building context around what you already know: that’s what curiosity is. — Christina Rosalie
We are all born hardwired for curiosity. It’s one of the things that’s a drive in us, as a need like hunger or thirst, but the cool thing about curiosity is that there’s no intrinsic reward […] Curiosity is its own reward. — Christina Rosalie
Maybe a fast win gets you somewhere, but if you did a slow win that allows for some different kinds of thinking, it will get you further in the long run. — Christina Rosalie
