The first part of the articles title what’s taken from a podcast created by
I listen to the entire podcast like I do most LSE podcasts. Sometimes some of these podcasts are very interesting, but what I find most interesting is the common sense behaviors which are sometimes described as new ideas.
In this particular podcast, Saj Jetha is both sharing his book and what he has found, or I should say rediscovered in his own life by watching others. He currently has an organization which helps other organizations and corporations become smarties as he describes in his book an conference. I found this talk very interesting. He also teaches and describes things in a simple way to help others see that which they have forgotten.
What have they forgotten you ask?
What Saj Jetha is simply describing is childlike behavior, which many forget because of conditioning at home or educational institutions which dictate or teach in a manner or way which removes creative thinking. Many students and adults today are very indecisive due to their inability to be able to think for themselves in some situations. That’s not to say that they are not knowledgeable or are unable to contribute to society. They just usually don’t have any new ideas or think out-of-the-box.
Childlike behavior is important. It is so important that it was mentioned in the Bible. I am not saying that children are smarter. They just tend to think more out-of-the-box than adults do. They have an open mind and observe and analyze more than adults at work who continue doing the same thing over and over while stuffing themselves with boredom. Children do not have the history or experience of an adult, but if they did, and it was acquired through birth. They would most definitely outsmart adults in every game.
So I encourage you all to listen to the podcast or read his book, because that which he mentions and writes about. Is that which most of you adults have forgotten, and your small children do daily. Play and live.
