I think this is my favorite of all your principles. I love them all, but this is the one that went I heard it I almost vaulted from my seat screaming "thank god I'm not alone". It such a powerful principle.

I love that you're sharing these with the world...it needs them :)

You need to add that one of the things that inhibits people from seeing like a child is the fear of seeming like you don't know. Kids aren't afraid of looking like idiots. The harm of not knowing for adults is much greater.

For kids, you don't have to do big things to have big impact. They haven't been hardwired with that equation (yet). A funny word can set off peals of laughter that continue to bubble up over the course of a day. A big, organized, fun 'experience' can be forgotten as soon as it is over. It's simply about what is delightful and what works. That is a valuable perspective.

In other words, you must feed your curiosity, because it grows stronger as it is fed, and the cognitive foundation set by that curiosity is what enables one to recognize patterns and make connections across disparate elements of complex systems.

Wonderful article... the first of yours I have read and I look forward to discovering more :)

I get to spend plenty of time in the company of my 5 year old granddaughter and love viewing the world through her eyes.

Letting things be more than they are designed to be, is indeed a gift that young eyes have - she is ingenius (and her delivery - a delight).

Namaste,

Yeah, I agree with you. We only can know what they want when understand them from their angle.
