Ropes Courses and Such
I have a friend who, with her husband, has raised three exceptional children. One of her philosophies is, instead of giving children toys, to give them “real things.” They didn’t do skateboards or TV (except for the World Series). But if a kid wanted a banjo, he got a real one, not a baby version. And instead of playing board games of risk, he competed by volunteering in a real political campaign.
I thought of this again when I saw last week in my local paper a story on mountain climbing as a way to develop the goal orientation and other qualities needed to start a business. My philosophy is: skip the mountain challenge (unless you’re in it for the fun) and go straight to starting the business.
