It’s a brand new year. 2018 is an exciting time to rock. You should be curious not only in your business life but your personal life too. In today’s podcast I share a Kahuna Concept. These Kahuna Concepts are also posted on my YouTube channel.

I wasn’t always great at school or studying, but I was always curious. It is important to be curious because it leads to certain things. There was an article in the Harvard Business Review that talks about curiosity being as important as intelligence. Today, I break down how curiosity has helped me in my life.

Topics on Today’s Episode:

  • IQ is the intellectual quotient or the amount of god given brain power that you have.
  • Having a high IQ is like having a lot of RAM.
  • EQ is the emotional quotient or how you deal with complexity. Does it stress you out or overwhelm you.
  • A higher EQ helps deal with emotional stress of complexity.
  • CQ is your curiosity quotient. This is learning by being curious. You can increase your internal learning and recall by being curious about things.
  • Being curious and figuring things out has come very natural to me.
  • In the apartment business, you have to be curious and learn how to solve problems.
  • You have to figure out how things work from loans to insurance to operations.
  • When I meet people who are good at what they do, I want to understand the process and ask them questions.
  • I also recall their phrases and terminology and adapt it as my own.
  • I have been working the CQ my entire life.
  • I was a cabana boy at the Stardust Hotel and Casino. We set up chairs and towels for guests.
  • There was a club at my hotel that I was curious about. I asked the bouncers questions about if they let underage people in.
  • Later in my life, my wife and I wanted to go to a new club. The line was around the block, but I was confident that we weren’t waiting in line.
  • I was curious enough in my adolescence to learn how the doorguy bouncer job worked. I was able to use this knowledge to show off to my future wife.
  • Don’t stop being curious.
