Being a Mermaid.
A friend of mine was having a conversation with his young daughter in the car:
“So, what do you want to be when you grow up?”
Daughter (thinking hard before answering):
“Well…I really want to be a mermaid…but then I won’t have any legs.”
Kids have an amazing talent for unbridled optimism coupled with an unparalleled ability to see the obvious.
I think if we could just stop and think like a little girl who really wants to be a mermaid, it would help us to see the obvious in the sometimes tough decisions we have to make in life and business.
Big dreams are great, but they still need legs.
