My son Hampus is already a very adventurous young man. He is only 3 years now but he have already done a lot of the things a boy should do as he grows up. I keep a checklist that you can see below …
I am pretty sure he will grow up to be a great entrepreneur, invent big things or start great companies. He already have that urge to challenge everything and try out all you can do.
When I was a kid I was like that too. Some people claim I am still that way. I never believed in people when they told me: You can’t do this or you can’t do that!
For over a year I did not tie my shoe laces. I never tripped over them once! I opened my first company with a good friend at age 18. Everyone told us we would break up. We ran the company successfully together for 13 years.
Never believe people when they tell you things can’t be done. Sometimes they are right but very often they are not. Anyway, back to the checklist I keep on my son with all the cool and entrepreneurial things he have done so far.
|Pee on an electric fence|
|Climb trees naked (it does hurt when you glide down!)|
|Stuff a raisin in your nose|
|Break a laptop (in anger or just for fun)|
|Stick you finger in the car door as it close (that hurts too)|
|Shit on the floor (best to do before you are too grown up)|
|Drink beer (leftovers if that’s all you can get)|
|Wash mothers wool shirt at highest temperature|
|Paint the cat|
|Get your penis stuck in a zipper (ouch!)|
The list is actually longer – this is just the highlights. Maybe you have some good ones to add?
