Ever hear of the book, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”?
Here’s what Robert Fulghum has to say:
1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don’t hit people.
4. Put things back where you found them.
5. Clean up your own mess.
6. Don’t take things that are not yours.
7. Say you’re sorry when you hurt someone.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life. Learn some and think some and draw some and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic. Hold hands and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the seed in the cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
Everything we need to know is in there somewhere. Take any of this advice and think about it in adult terms. Our workplaces would perhaps run even more smoothly if we put some of this into practice. (Warm cookies and cold milk couldn’t hurt!)
And think about it: no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together. And, for heaven’s sake, please remember to play nice in the sandbox!
