Whys Grows UP to be WISE!

According to TED Founder, Richard Saul Wurman, we get rewarded for our answers, not our questions. Can you imagine being in grade school and getting a test in how good your questions are? Unheard of! In fact, it is just the opposite.

When we are young "why" is our go-to. We want to know everything. As young as three years old, we hear, "Stop asking why all of the time!" Yet, take the time to ponder the ultimate oxymoron ~ how do you become WISE if you don't know WHY?

The definition of Wise is: having the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting; a wise leader. I think we should bring WHY back. Why? Because it is the seed of creativity. Without curiosity, there would be no discovery. Anyways, what's the FUN in knowing everything!
