Try Something New
By Asst. Superintendent Dr. Logan Toone
As a parent of young children, I often need to encourage my kids to eat certain foods at dinnertime. The conversation goes something like this:
Me: “Hey buddy, can you eat your salad?”
Child: (Silently wonders if ignoring me will work)
Me: “C’mon bud, we’re in a little bit of a hurry. Eat your salad please.”
Child: (Unwilling to give up on quiet resistance, pretends to eat his fruit and chicken — which he’s already eaten)
Me: “Son, you need to eat your salad, it’s good for you!”
Child: (Reluctantly realizing the futility of his previous methods), “But I don’t like this salad.”
Me: “You haven’t even tried it yet. How do you know you don’t like it?”
Child: “I didn’t like salad last time we had it.” ...
You don’t just luck into things. ...You build step by step, whether it’s friendships or opportunities.Barbara Bush
