My 2 year old nephew, Charlie, has a wooden wagen (being British, he calls it a trolley) that he loves to take EVERYWHERE with him.
When I was visiting last week, he demanded that we take it on a hike.
Lucky for us, he forgot about it in the car and we didn’t have to let him drag it through the woods.
Two-year-olds are fiercely independent, right?
They don’t want help from ANYONE thankyouverymuch.
And while it’s critical for toddlers to assert their independence and learn things “the hard way” I wonder how often as adults we do the same thing.
We don’t like to ask for advice.
We think our situation is unique.
We want to figure it all out on our own.
But isn’t that silly?
Why reinvent the wheel if there’s someone you can go to for help?
Why try to muddle through a problem if you’ve got a resource available to you?
We may think our situations are unique or that it’s better to struggle forward on our own (like Charlie with his trolley)…
… but usually this just causes more frustration and delay. Maybe even wasted money.
So today I want you to ask yourself, are you trying to reinvent the wheel?
What project or decision are you facing where you can get some help?
In this video, you’ll learn 3 questions you can ask yourself to make any project or decision easier.
I recommend you start a binder where you can keep all of these worksheets along with any of the other printables you download or purchase from the Early Bird Mom shop.
Request this week’s worksheet below and spend some time answering the 2 questions you’ll find there. (If you’re already on our email list, you’ll get each week’s worksheet on Mondays at 4pm EST.)
