I watched the movie “Sing”. It was animated suggesting it was for children. Indeed, it was, but it was also for adults. It was inspirational. It demonstrated how people can perform with great talent and ability when they fail to follow the directions given to them and decide to follow their own direction.
I believe that we are often limited in our performance by having to follow the rules or directions. I am curious how children will do in school if they are encouraged to pursue their own way of learning. I am curious how employees will do on their jobs when they use their own judgement.
When I parented, I found my children had their own mode, their own instincts, their own views. Usually they were very successful by following their own path.
Too often we stifle talent. Watch the movie.
