Curious Versus Dedicated

Curious Versus Dedicated…

Interested Versus Committed…
Inspired Versus Faithful…
Stimulated Versus Loyal…

“When you’re interested, you do what’s convenient. When you’re committed, you do whatever it takes” -John Assaraf

Recently I was listening to John Assaraf on his brain-athon and I was reminded of this very simple concept that is so powerful.

In my line of work I often hear how people want to “inspire” others. When you look at it this way, make sure you understand that you are just creating interest, sparking curiosity, offering stimulation. Your goal should be to get people committed. When they are committed, they are dedicated, faithful, loyal.

With that said, you first need to decide whether or not you are curious or dedicated. In a recent article I read by a gentleman named, Paul Morin, he tackled this very subject after he listened to John Assaraf speak. Here are a few key differences he made between interested and committed.

1. If you are interested, you show up sometimes. If you are committed, you show up all the time.
2. If you are interested, when things get tough, you give up and move on to your next “interest”. If you are committed, no matter how tough things get, you find a way over, under, around, or through obstacles.
3. If you are interested, you dabble in a bunch of interests, If you are committed, you concentrate your energy on achieving a much shorter list of objectives. In short, you focus.
