For the first installment of “What My Toddler Has Taught Me About Adult Learning,” here is a little story that will either warm your heart or make your stomach churn.
A few weeks ago, Mac and I were talking about dinner on our drive home from school. The conversation went like this:
Me: Mac, what would you like for dinner tonight?
Me: What should we put on the pizza?
Mac: Peanut butter!
Me: What? You want to put peanut butter on your pizza?
Mac: And guacamole!
Me (almost gagging at the thought of such a pizza): And what else?
Mac: Green beans!
Me: What else?
Mac: (pause) (pause) (pause)
Me: Anything else you’d like us to put on your pizza, Mac?
Why not a peanut butter/ guacamole / green bean / milk pizza? I mean, seriously!!!
The real lesson?
We easily get stuck in ruts and thus we need new perspectives to challenge our thinking.
I thus offer you this picture of a corn dog pizza with a challenge to try new things! You just might learn something!
