Ben Casnocha talked today about young people and the freedom they have to "develop a cultural identity" since they’re unencumbered by the ,"But what will they think" modality.
Cultivating the, "Try like hell and fail…now is the best time in your life to explore what you can do without boundaries, fear, or the prospect of ruin," is the most important lesson I believe we must impart upon our children.
I’m rabidly focused on this with my two children. The best teaching method however is to lead by example and involve ones children in the processes, decisions, day-to-day operations, and planning of ones ventures. Let them see that daddy still has that spark and attitude that, "It doesn’t matter what the neighbors or the other big people think…it’s what you think and do that matters."
