The BIG Payoff
I helped set a goal this past year. I felt that hit was a stretch but realistic. I asked that he improve his counting. I honestly thought it would take him somewhere in the neighborhood of a year. Guess what, he did it less than 60 days. So, we bought a really big LEGO thingy.
Here, than, is the question. If you only have to count to 100 (the original goal) why does it take a master's degree to put thedang thing together? Steve and I worked together -- furiously -- and finished it in about four hours.
This was a good exercise for us, however. We learned something about the orchestration of Christmas. Very valuable.
PS -- The comment of the day was when we were at the store, perusing the aisles Cooper asked, "Now, do I have to share this?"
