Not Out Of The Box, Think Like There’s No Box

I’ve been thinking, do blind people feel love at first sight?

Why is the word “abbreviation”, so long?

Why is the meaning of life hard, when you have a dictionary.

Well, my little niece once asked me, “Uncle Eizu, are oranges named orange because the color is orange, or is the color orange, orange because it’s same color as the fruit orange?”.. ewhooaa!!!

Someone asked me, “why is the third hand of a clock called a seconds”.

I think these are brilliant questions.

Be curious. Ask questions.

In the word of Henry Ford, “Anyone who stops learning is old. Whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young”.

“The important thing is not to stop questioning.” – Albert Einstein

This week, be curious.

Curiosity killed the cat. But that’s a very honorable way to die.

Ask questions. A brand built on curiosity to help your curiosity, (Google) is today, the richest in the world. It made 9.4 billion dollars net income between in the first quarter of the year. And we are still waiting to share oil money. See a holocaust powered by ignorance and religion is coming to Nigeria…

Kids grow from asking question without thinking through it, even if it’s silly.

I volunteered at a teenage boot camp sometimes ago, and while teaching business and financial intelligence, one of the kids asked me, “how can a man who invests money be called a “broker”..lol.. I love kids. When I grow up, I’ll like to be like them.

Having lost our childish but awesome gift to ask silly questions, we need to nurture the curiosity of their young minds to find solutions to our world. We need to structure out curiosity.

Be curious. Dig for knowledge and you will be shocked with the other discoveries you will make.


Curiosity took the first men to space, and the reward became satellites and today’s internet. Out of sheer curiosity, men once dug the ground to find what was underneath, and guess what they found..today’s clean water!

But out of satisfaction, they stopped digging. It took millenniums later for a new set of curious men to carry on that curiosity, and guess what they found after water..Crude oil!… now what’s next, gas, Uranium, a new planet was found last month, it’s the closest and best thing to earth, it is most likely going to be the next home for the next generation.

Life is deep, there are things the forces of the universe does not want us to know. So when you become too curious, it distracts you, by giving you something else, with vague and material success. So curiosity at less, is our trick to succeed. Outsmart the universe.

My dear, Keep Digging!

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. If you must drink from its fountain, drink a lot or drink not at all, for a little intoxicates the mind, but the much makes us deep and sober, wisdom.

If you knew better, you’ll do better. Before you make up your mind, open it.
