If you are at all like me you spend a significant amount of time beating yourself up for NOT doing what you know you should do.
Most of the achievement oriented people I know do this quite a bit. It is as though they are on a quest for perfection and anything less than that is unsatisfying.
Don't get me wrong ... I think it's a great thing to be on a quest for perfection, and I believe people who are, will ultimately experience a good deal of success because they'll never feel as though they've arrived. There will always be something else to accomplish.
Don't you just love it when you are cooped up in the car with young children, going on a long trip and everytime they see something they haven't seen before, they begin with the questions?
Well, if you are anything like me ... it drives you nuts! :)
I understand these questions are an absolute requirement for their development and the answers you provide goes a long way in developing their intellectual capital. So, although it can be extremely frustrating and annoying, as parents, we need to take the time to answer these questions and show as little irritation as possible so you don't deter their inquisitiveness and stifle their growth.
Even though this is true it'll still drive even the most patient of people crazy when every explanation is met with the question ...
