When I was in college, I ran an acting program at a local camp. Our goals were to teach the kids some craft, put on a production and, of course, have fun. Since that time, I’ve used many of my acting lessons and applied them to leadership.
The grocery store was packed, and every single shopper was miserable. Aisles were slow going, favorite brands were sold out and the checkout lines looked like they were miles long. It was a scene that’s probably familiar to anyone who has ever done their grocery shopping on the weekend.
It was two hours before 2015 and my 11 year old daughter’s friend taught her a nifty trick – she can text on her iPod. My 9 year old son was thrilled to get into the action too. I thought that they’d be out of primary school before I had to teach them good tech habits, but my daughter has put on her technology training wheels, long before I was ready, and is taking them out for a spin.
