This time round, I took "Sandbox Wisdom" to read on my flight from Dakar (Senegal) to Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso). It turned out to be an interesting experience. The book is very provocative and inspiring. It makes you recall the child in you and the beauty of innocence. Coming to think of it, if we behave like children, then there will be no problems in this world. In the mind of a child, everything is possible. As we grow older, we become too self-conscious and concerned about the risk of failure and we start making excuses for not trying. The focus shifts from "how it can be done", to "why it cannot be done."
The flight was quite smooth though the we landed in Bamako as if we were shot down from the sky. To make amends, the pilot was extremely careful when landing in Ouagadougou (our next destination) to the point that we kept floating above the runway for quite some time before hitting land - a very smooth finish!
Going back to "Sandbox Wisdom". I recommend that you read this book to see how modern-day business problems can be solved with child-like attitudes.
