Kicking a ball up the hill

I am sat at my desk pondering what to write in today’s blog and I’m distracted by a kid, who is only just a little bigger than the ball he’s trying to kick. We live on a hill and, yes, he’s trying to kick it up the hill.

Initially, it did not go well and he spent a good deal of time chasing the ball down the hill and fetching out from under cars. But sooner or later he found a solution, he changed his tactic from big hoofs to smaller kicks and smartly enlisted other kids to fetch the ball when his kicks went astray.

Enthusiasm and a willingness to try different approaches again and again until he learnt was the solution and he solved it very quickly given his age. The other lesson was don’t do thing’s alone, we are not meant to always struggle alone, collaboration is definitely the answer to many things.
