Walt Disney was smart, interesting and curious man.
I’m curious about a lot of things, but most of the time I don’t ask people-face-to-face questions. I research. I go find articles, google it or search twitter for things. I like to answer my own questions. I know I should ask more questions and utilize people around me, but sometimes I see that as being “nosey” which is a not how I want to seem.
I was talking about this just today with the youth group at church. We were discussing how people are different and have different gifts and talents. My husband is a QUESTIONER–he’s an interrogator, he wants to know and he asks. It’s actually not just part of his character, he does this in his daily work. I just don’t think that way. I’m not saying it’s bad that he does, but I know saying he’s “nosey” is not a good way to describe it. So, the word that one of the youth helped me remember is INQUISITIVE–that is a nice and I believe more intelligent word to describe this ability. It’s not just an adjective, but a talent for some like my husband and I imagine for Walt Disney. I am almost certain he took his dreams and ideas and asked others questions, bounced off ideas and developed his great projects by being very inquisitive.
Curiosity is something we should all utilize in order to formulate our ideas and further our projects. Walt Disney was a great man with great ideas and a dream that has far surpassed what I believe even he expected. Just think about how the Disney DYNASTY started with just a small spark of curiosity that grew into more and more and MORE curiosity …
THEN BAM—IDEAS AND PROJECTS AND MORE IDEAS AND MORE RIDES AND SHOWS AND FUN AND MAGIC!!!
I am ready to go back to Disney World!
