This is the fourth book I’ve read for the #EmptyShelf Challenge.
Below is the format I plan to do this year for each book I read.
Title: 10 Big Things LIttle Kids Taught Me
Author: G. Andrew Beresford
What’s it about: It’s about the life lessons a dad learned while spending a few years as the primary caregiver of his two sons.
Why did I read it: Being a father of two sons myself I found the title intriguing. Plus it’s also written by a good friend of mine.
Favorite idea: In Chapter 8 entitled “It’s A Setup”, Beresford shares how he and his wife, while trying to potty train the boys, would set them up for failure by giving them a snack or warm milk right before bed. He relates this to how we fail to meet our own goals by not “setting ourselves up for success.” I love this statement “Procrastination leads to hesitation, which leads to immobilization, which leads to stagnation, which ultimately leads to termination.”
Where can you buy it? Right here.
