Every kid starts out as a natural-born scientist, and then we beat it out of them. Very few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for science intact.
Born a Scientist by Carl Sagan about Education, Science
A complex world has made us over-emphasise How-based thinking and education. Once the tools are understood, grasping why to do certain things becomes more valuable than how to do them. How is recipes, but learning a craft is more than following instructions.

How is important for new practitioners learning to avoid common mistakes. Why is for those who wish to push, are not risk-averse, and seek to improve. How is coulda, Why is shoulda. How is finishing tasks, Why is fulfilling objectives. How results in more, Why yields better.
