Over the holidays I read a very good book by Amanda Lang, The Power of Why. It’s about the importance of curiosity, and how we can unleash and use its power to bring more creativity, innovation and positive change to our lives. It turns out that asking the right questions can result in a greater sense of fulfillment and happiness, whether it’s in our workplaces, organizations, homes or relationships.
Solo, our year and a half-old resident black-tailed deer, clearly doesn’t need to read the book: he already has a firm grasp on the power of why.
His curiosity is always on the loose, causing him to ruminate over just about everything around him – especially the antics of the two-legged animals he watches so closely each day: “What in the world are those humans doing now, and more importantly, why?”
