S7 EP7: Chris Lund – How to embrace your insatiable curiosity and make it your superpower

Share the goodness!

Creatively curious people have a deep desire to explore and follow a path until the very end. When in actual fact killing a dream, a project, an idea, is in fact, the very thing that will help you get to the next level of your success.

In this episode, you’ll learn the critical importance of know when to:

Let go.

Bet big on yourself (even take a 97% pay cut) and not do what’s expected of you

Recognise when you’re on to something versus when you’re not.

Find the strength in your creative muscles to unlock your biggest potential.

Dance harder on the fine line between what’s acceptable and not and have more fun!

As you’ll hear on today’s episodes of The Snippets of Genius Podcast, it’s his insatiable curiosity that has allowed Chris Lund to evolve into a the youngest ever CMO of banking in the US, an award wining creative agency owner, and now a brand builder within an agile innovation hub with a license to kill.

If you’ve ever wondered whether your curiosity really matters, or worse assumed this was some kind of procrastination, listen to this episode now!

The stories and wisdom that Chris shares from his 35+ years in high performing roles will show you how to lean into your curiosity and love of story telling to become the person you most want to be.
