10 Big Lessons from Little Kids
 
“You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.” - Franklin P. Jones
 
Have you ever watched a child completely engrossed in a project? They have the unusual ability to be serious about what they’re doing without taking it too seriously. You can do the same with your life. You can live every day with more focus, and every week with more motivation.
 
 Here’s what every child knows that you may have forgotten. See if you can apply some of these lessons to your adult life.
 
1. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even when there’s not a prize in the bottom of the box.
 
2. Homework blows. Bring work home with you and it’ll ruin your night. And your marriage. And your family. And your life.
 
3. The only way to know how something works is to completely disassemble it. (This is still good advice when tackling a complex problem. Your plasma TV? Not so much).
 
4. There’s a reason they don’t give credit cards to 8-year-olds. You’re supposed to save up money before you buy a new toy.
 
5. Asking questions is how you figure things out. Lots and lots of questions.
 
6. The coolest adults were the ones who took the time to listen to you. You still want to grow up to be a cool adult, right?
 
7. Your body was designed for throwing baseballs, shooting hoops, and jumping off diving boards and stuff. In the secret language of children, the word “fitness” doesn’t exist. It’s called “having fun.”
 
8. Playtime is important and laughter feels good.
 
9. Too much of anything will give you a tummy ache. Like, say, bourbon.
 
10. Try to be the friend you were when you were 12: fun-loving and loyal, with no strings attached.
 
When you act more like a kid, suddenly the world opens up, and you start enjoying yourself again!
 
 
 
Following 2 paragraphs are the description for 9th and 10th facts which are my favorites.
 
Those who over-exercise will burn themselves out. Those who site sedately all day suffer from atrophy. A boy who studies all the time has no friends. Another who only makes friends fails in his examinations. Staying too long under the sun can result in heatstroke and sunburn. Not going out at all makes the skin pale and pallid. Sharpening at all will render the knife useless. Being extreme is always the cause of pain. Moderation, then is the key of life. It is the way to live our lives as it is meant to be lived.
 
The quality that tops the list in survey after survey of what people appreciate most about their friends is loyalty — support that you always give to someone because of your feelings of duty and love towards them. The famous maxim that “a friend in need is a friend indeed” is not the entire story of loyalty, however. A friend in triumph may be even harder to find. It takes twenty-four-karat loyalty for a friend to soar alongside us when we are flying high rather than to bring us down to earth. Loyal friends not only lend a hand when you’re in need; they applaud your successes and cheer you on without envy when you prosper. Be loyal.
 
A few bunch of things I thought after I read the above article ...
 
Be simple. When we were kids, we don't talk fat words, we don't have complex conversation, we don't do complicate assumption. We just try to simplify almost everything. For the adulthood we tend to go high, complex and complicate things. Yes but sometime .. we get confused and remember that's the time to try this simple method.
 
One more thing to add, kids don't grab one thing for long and also they let things go. They loose things in hand when they have to grab new things. They don't take it too hard, they don't take it personal. One you made them upset and then you can sooth them soon. Usually kids don't revenge and they try to forgive. Only the adults keep almost everything in hand and can't afford to lose a bit ... that's keep us unhappy .. isn't it ? So don't take anything too hard, especially for the people who are very serious about everything.
