I'll give you a great example. I try to do a lot of education. I have three small children at home that are innately curious, as children are. I think what's interesting in adults is we tend to lose that due to the hectic pace of life. I was driving home from work the other day. I stopped and picked up the kids. We're driving down and we go by a little irrigation canal. And I often see kids fishing in there. So I look over; I see a great blue heron. So we stop and I say, "Hey, kids let's go see this." And they're like, "What are you doing dad, another crazy fieldtrip?"
So we stop by and we see three heron, not one, but the first one led to several others. And that leads my kids to get home, to read about herons and why they have long legs and long beaks. And what the heck are they doing in Chandler, Arizona, a place that's very dry? But they happened to find this one small waterhole that clearly has some fish in it for them to survive. And it's just having that kind of thirst for interest in knowledge that you had as a kid. Everyone did, but how much can you maintain that throughout your life and foster it in others?
