VIDEO: The Mystery of Curiosity

BY Tom Morgan / Feb 17 2024 / Video

Compressing nearly a decade’s work into 20 minutes.

If you’ve been reading any of my work over the last few years you’ll have noticed I’ve been exploring a single core idea from as many different angles as I can.

This is because I believe that this idea can meaningfully change the world.

An idea that holds the potential to shift our collective worldview will necessarily sound unusual to a lot of people. The purpose of my work has been to find a way to distill this idea into something that can be understood by the most people with the least loss of meaning. I jokingly call this “Minimum Viable Woo.”

To be more specific, I believe we have collectively become disconnected from a hidden force. This is my attempt to explore why that has happened, and what that force might be.

I’ve spent the last few months distilling nearly 10 years of work into a 20 minute presentation. You can listen to it above, but that will be much less fun than watching it below.

What does this have to do with Wealth Management? Well, the stability that can be provided by wealth is critical to our ability to pursue our own curiosity. One critical role of a financial advisor is therefore to help their clients feel secure enough to identify and pursue what brings them alive.

Earlier this week I presented this idea, alongside the phenomenal finance writer Kyla Scanlon, at the 2024 Exchange Conference hosted by Lara Crigger at VettaFi (video starts at 5 minutes 49 seconds).
