If my 6 year old daughter has figured it out then maybe it’s time we did as well.

I asked her about something she did by herself that I thought was difficult to do as a 6 year old and she replied “I just asked Mummy, Dad”. It hit me like a truck hitting a cyclist that this a key to success in life ....


Two things I noted

1.       She looked good asking, came across as sharp to ask engaged the respect of the person being asked and more than likely got a great answer.

2.       She learnt something, and this built her confidence and self esteem

So today I am going to ask questions rather than pretend I know everything....

Good advice Alex - I will try it my self... I know I talk way to much and don't do anything like enough questioning and listening. Thanks.
