Everyone can learn something from someone. Steve Olson demonstrates this point very well with his latest post. In the article, he points out 10 things that he learned from his 4-year-old son. He finds some fresh point of views on life and how to handle tasks. I am pretty impressed by his kid, his observation and how to convert behavior cue to actual application:

  • To use positive words
  • To look for opportunity everywhere
  • A new synonym for persistence
  • To ask big questions
  • To accept mistakes
  • To pay attention to little details
  • To stop complaining
  • To strive for consistency
  • How to build a maze with random items in the garage
  • To experiment

A new synonym for persistence strikes and reminds me to persist on tasks that I found difficult. It is so smart that a 4-year-old kid can create a word to encourage himself to “keep trying even when it’s hard”.
