Good to be curious

Just the other day I was nervous about writing my first column. By the other day I mean three years ago. Time flies when you’re having fun – ‘write’? Pun intended lol. But anyway, down to business.

I remember being in primary school and having a ruler which said “shatter proof”. Of course I thought shatter proof meant it was unbreakable lol. I soon found out that that wasn’t the case lol but I was curious.

They say curiosity killed the cat. That’s not always the case. I think curiosity contributes to technological advancements as well as personal knowledge.

Look at the example I gave about the ruler. It made me realise that the word shatter doesn’t mean that it couldn’t break. This is good. When you’re curious about other people’s business well that’s where you have a problem lol – you’re just plain malicious lol.

Curiosity makes us break boundaries. What if I did this instead of that, how about adding twice as much. What would be the reaction? I wonder if we could make it smaller.

So get curious, ask questions and see what you find out.
