We have four people in our house who will order something on Amazon or through some other online source from time to time. So, you never know when a box or package may show up on the porch. When you see a box on the porch and you’re not the one who ordered something, the response is almost always, “Ooh, what’s in the box?” You get really curios really fast.
Curiosity is defined as “A strong desire to know or learn something.” It is the driving force behind innovation and creativity. Some of the smartest and most influential people have had these things to say about curiosity.
“I have no special talent, I’m only passionately curious.” Albert Einstein
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.” Albert Einstein
“The mind that opens to a new idea never returns to its original size.” Albert Einstein
“Creativity is Intelligence having fun.” Albert Einstein – Curiosity is the fuel of creativity
“Curiosity is the engine of achievement.” Sir Ken Robinson
“The most important thing a teacher can do for students is to keep their curiosity alive,” Ken Robinson. [see his TED talk on the subject. It’s the most watched TED talk of all time]
“The future belongs to the curious, the ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it, and turn it inside out.” Unkown
If all this is true, I wonder why more of us aren’t more curious.
