Stay with problems longer

It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.

Albert Einstein

The most important and foundational skills often take time and persistence, lots of it. My formal education went through to age 24 when it culminated qualified as a Chartered Accountant. The skills I learned through that created a foundation for me for the last three decades. My two oldest sons swam for the Cayman Islands in the Commonwealth Games, each had trained for over the 10,000 hours to get to their pinnacle.

My most important role in life is as a father to three boys, I hope they learn from me as much as I learn from them, and I am still and will always be learning how to be a better father.

This Sunday simply sharing a quite beautiful one minute video of a father teaching Einstein’s life lesson to his son. Do watch, and stay to the very end.
