A crash course in changing the world.
Never let the child within you die.
Michelle's post [http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/the-secret-or-the-forgotten] made me stop and think. How much are we missing out on? As one goes through the education system not enough emphasis is placed upon creativity. As adults, playful, more individual ideas are often dismissed as 'childish' or 'silly.'
Who are you to say we should not or cannot behave or do things in certain ways?
Remember when you were small. I remember when I was four, I loved playing with Lego blocks. Castles, couches, moats; they all got built by me armed with my special Lego blocks.
But what happened when something went wrong? Or a Lego bridge fell down?
Well you pieced it back together of course. If something did not work out, one would simply put it together again differently, or perhaps with more bricks for support. Lego encouraged and fostered the creativity of children, while still making them use logic.
In today's society it seems almost impossible to be creative and logical at the same time.
My idea? Give today's leaders some Lego blocks. Put them in a room with them for a couple of days. Then come back. It will do more good than anything else. Today's leaders are just crying out for Lego.
