SuperKids Brain Food

Think Like A Kid. (c)Roger von Oech. A high school teacher drew a dot on the blackboard and asked the class what it was. "A chalk dot on the blackboard," was the only response. "I'm surprised at you," the teacher said. "I did this exercise with a group of kindergartners and they thought of fifty different things it could be: an owl's eye, a squashed bug, a cow's head. They had their imaginations in high gear." As Picasso put it, "Every child is an artist. The challenge is to remain an artist after you grow up." What's the first things a kid would say about your problem? About how to have fun? What to be afraid of? What's really exciting? What doesn't make sense? How to be more playful? What's hard to understand? What new rules you can make up? What imaginary friend you should have? What's not fun? If your issuwere a game, how do you score points? What gets you kicked out? What receives a standing ovation from the fans?What do you have to do to get booed? What is the fun element? Whom do you compete against? What rules do you need to follow? What equipment is needed? How do you know when you've won? How do you know when you've lost? What is out of bounds? What penalizes you? What constitutes a brilliant play? What puts you in the record books? How often do you practice?
