Good to Great is definitely a great book that worths reading, and for several times. The book is very inspiring and the wisdom shared with Jim Collins is full of surprise, yet logically make sense.

Good is the enemy of great.

Undaunted Curiosity
People often ask, “What motivates you to undertake these huge research projects?” It’s a good question. The answer is, “Curiosity.” There is nothing I find more exciting than picking a question that I don’t know the answer to and embarking on a quest for answers. It’s deeply satisfying to climb into the boast, like Lewis and Clark, and head west, saying, “We don’t know what we’ll find when we get there, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we get back.”

We don’t know what we’ll find when we get there, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we get back.

Cool! Yet the result really matters, the happiness and growth could occurs when we are in the quest for it.
If we do not go ahead JUST simply due to the fact that we are not sure things will go as we expected, then we are not going to have big breakthrough.

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strength. When you go through hardship and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

I love this quote from Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Curiosity makes discovery happen!
Hardship makes growth happen!
Struggle makes strength happen!
