10 Things I Learned from My 4-Year-Old

10 Things I Learned from My 4-Year-Old

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”.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
