Thursday night, I asked my son, “Do you think I should still go the World Championships“?
Without hesitating, he said, “Yes“!
“Why”?, I wondered out loud.
“Two reasons”, he said. “Number one, to complete your goal of being the slowest of the fastest“.
I smiled and asked, “And what’s the second reason?”
“So we can be a little famous.”
Smiling again I asked, “Is being famous a good thing?”
He said, “Being a little famous, who wouldn’t want that kind of esteem?”
Kids say the darnedest things. Indeed.
Carpe diem, jeff 🙂
PS. Esteem, or self-confidence is a critical success factor, in my humble opinion. If something were to ever happen to me, maybe he’d remember that his Dad always said, “You have the choice to be positive or negative“.
I’ll explain the “Slowest of the Fastest” metaphor tomorrow.
