Simple words, profound effect
Today, my 10 year old daughter was describing this chore chart system she had designed. She thought that this would make my life easier, and theirs as well, and get the jobs done with as little aggrivation as possible.
I confessed my inability to follow "systems" very well, and my hesitation to take on another plan that will inevitable fail.
"Why do you think this is the job I was given, when I am so bad at it?" I asked my daughter.
She blinked, looked at me directly, and stated very firmly, "Because you are the only one who could do it."
Wow. What a simple answer.
I'm off to do what only I can do!
