Harold and the Purple Crayon

What does Harold have that you don’t?

A purple crayon?


What Harold had was a lot of curiosity.

Curiosity to draw outside the lines. Curiosity to draw what he saw in his mind’s eye. Doing it without hesitation, without judgment.

Here’s the thing, all of us are born with that same curiosity and wonder, but then, we grow up. We trade that spark for security and sensibility. We play it safe.

In moments of adversity or when we feel stuck, the reaction is to play it safe. When in fact, the opposite is true.

Playing it safe is what got you here. Curiosity is what will get you out.

With curiosity in hand, what more do you really need to make a ruckus?
