Have you ever watched a kid play in the sandbox?
Some waddle in, others go full-throttle, while plenty scope out the landscape before they enter.
I’ve never seen a kid not go in when the thought of playing in one is presented to them.
Kids are not held back by self-limiting beliefs. They don’t question what could go right or wrong.
They want to play, test, taste, and then iterate.
It may not be the iteration you think of but they iterate.
They build a castle, they knock it down.
They start to dig and then stop.
They drag a rake to make a road, and then they fill it with water for a moat.
Kids instinctively have an idea in their head, baked out or otherwise, as they enter the sandbox.
Then they keep ironing it out. Over and over. attempt after attempt.
It’s not about how great their masterpiece is or isn’t. That’s not what is most important.
It’s the fact that they went into the sandbox in the first place.
