Mini Saga #136 – Preconception

Mini Saga #135 – Preconception

Mark was shocked and amused when his three-year old son screamed, “Dad, I suck.”

“What?” he asked.

“I suck, Dad, I suck” the boy repeated.

“Where did you learn that?” Mark asked

“Don’t know, Dad. I suck and can’t get out, “ the boy said.

“Oh, you’re stuck..” smiled Mark.

Sometimes, our preconceptions take over. They can lead to humorous situations like the above or they can lead to misjudgments that can have a negative impact on our life, career or business.

Thanks to Marcus Nelson for allowing me to share his experience in the form of a mini saga.
