Farouk highlights the innate persistence, optimism and creativity that comes so naturally for children. (I know, that’s only three things so go read the post to find the other two.) When do we start to lose that anyway? Somewhere along the way, as we grow and mature, we start to give up more easily, become more “realistic” and stifle our creative expression. Now how counterproductive is that?
Anyway, read the post and give this some serious thought. What can you do to emulate a child (no temper tantrums, please!). We’re blessed with 10 grandchildren of various ages, including a soon-to-be-3 little man and a darling 5 month old baby girl who will both be here this weekend. I’m going to watch them closely with Farouk’s points in mind and see what lessons I can learn.
How about you? Got any kids handy? If not, find yourself a few - there are valuable lessons to be learned!
