“How does it work? Why is it so? When will it happen? Where to find more?” and other questions are asked by people who are curious. And these questions are wonderful because they represent curiosity which is the basis for learning and source of motivation.
As wonderful as these questions are, why don’t people (i.e, myself) ask more of them? Lately I have found myself lost my way with asking this kind of questions. Too set in my ways? too busy? too old to learn? too . . . I am not sure. But I don’t like it.
When one ceases to be curious, I believe one is just living to get by. Counting down the days. Learning new things used to recharge me. The excitement of acquiring something new, be it knowledge. skills, etc. gave me tremendous satisfaction that is more than material possession.
Now I want to get the feeling back.
How do you cultivate curiosity?
