Reading is not just about our family time – well, that is the most important part of it, but there are other benefits of it too. Personally, for me, spending time with my kids, after a long day at the office (or the home office now), gave me the much wanted rest and the opportunity to unwind.
I bet all you parents are thinking – Yeah, right. How do you unwind with two kids hovering all over you?
But seriously, it gave me a chance to completely change focus and take my mind away from the stresses, the trials and tribulations at work. When I am with my kids, it is purely about them… purely about fun and games.
Well, have you ever listened to a kid – have you truly listened to their imaginations go wild… to their thoughts… to their creativity? It is almost inspirational. In this fast-paced, highly complex and often difficult world, theirs are words and thoughts to cherish. They are not only refreshing, but also encouraging. If you listen to a child speak, if you listen to their reactions and their responses, you would think, just about anything is possible. Or as Adidas would market it – Impossible is nothing.
You want to build a massive house with a garage and an airport – no problem! It can be done.
Airports closed; can’t fly anywhere because of COVID – no worries; I can build you a plane that fights COVID and gets you there.
Can’t get to space – no problem; jump on to my spaceship and I can launch you there right away.
Need an idea for a business – no worries… have you thought of just drawing us into story books?
You see, there is a solution (and a positive one) for just about anything. So, what’s not to love about spending time with the kids?
If you have been following along then, the other advantage came about when my little guy offered me the creative, genius idea that led to the foundation of this business. So, when you buy that Picabook, and pay up at checkout, I can’t help but attribute that all to my son! I’m just waiting for his next million dollar idea now. And, who said anything about kids being a nuisance?
