CURIOSITY AND THE POWER OF WHY

Why” is usually a question kids ask constantly and consistently. “Why is the sky blue?” And even after proceeding to answer the question, it’s still followed with, “But why?”. That curiosity about every little detail in life seems to be something we outgrow over time. Have you ever wondered when we stopped? And why?

Why means “for what cause, reason, or purpose”.

It’s a question that allows us to find deeper answers and get context. With a vast range of information just at our fingertips, it’s easy to see why we might be taking this for granted. We have access to almost unlimited information because of the internet. We also have the opportunity to meet different kinds of people from anywhere in the globe. With that much information, all of us can drown in it and focus only on the surface-level. We focus on facts, on the “When’s”, “How’s”, and “What’s”. And sure, these are also important things, but why is inspiration. It’s purpose and core.

Ask why to find the soul in your plans and endeavors

For example, if you want to start a business it is important to know how to do it. It’s also really important to know what, and when. But plans need vision for it to have a cohesive direction. If you have all the processes, supplies, and facilities, not having a purpose is just you striving for something vague. There’s no aim. Having a clear vision and purpose is also really helpful when you need to remind yourself why you’re doing this in the first place.

This will not only motivate you, but also the people you’re working or interacting with. Asking why can give you opportunities to really understand anything, be it a concept, an idea or a skill. It challenges you to be more detailed, to really think about things, and be more intentional. Of course, this wouldn’t be easy at first, but practicing being more open and keeping a curious mind can go a long way.
