Ever thought about what it would have been like if humans did not possess that profound itch called curiosity? The advancement we have achieved from studying, exploring, and designing would not exist without curiosity. From the first working wheel, to vaccines, to underwater life, to building space shuttles, all things were explored and then developed, all thanks to our curiosity.
By being curious, people can easily derive interest, commit to learning, learn new information, and deliver results with enthusiasm. Soon they realize that they enjoy it and want to become part of it. Not to mention, with time, they can do all this without putting any real effort.
