Lessons from a six year old

This weekend I took Ethan deep sea fishing for his first time. I hardly put a line in the water as I was so busy watching him fish I didn’t fish myself. The excitment and trust that he displayed was awesome. Each time the line went down his mind was wondering what fish will I pull up next, what if it is a shark, or if the fish is so big it pulls me into the sea. He was so caught up in the moment, loving the feel of the swell, the sound of the sea, the tiredness in his arms from reeling up fish. He was so proud of his first Cob that he wanted to head straight home to eat it. I don’t call him “Champ” for nothing. Whether he is climbing trees, riding his bike, reading his homework he seems to focus on the task at hand. At times his imagination runs wild and a walk in the garden becomes an epic adventure.
This weekend he taught me a new phrase that we can all learn from:”Stop, Think, Do!” Nice and simple, so as I head into my exam this morning that will be my mantra. Stop, Think, Do and I will get through this exam.
Thanks Champ, you a star.
