My 5th grader was typing away at the keys of his school laptop, completing the final draft of his story.
When asked what it was about, he told me he had to explain what he would do if he had an unlimited number of minions for the week.
Maybe a few could take over my job for the week and I could take time off, but without coming back to a pile of work that needs to be completed.
Sounds great, I thought. But I wondered, what did my son want his minions to do?
They built him some great big ship and there was something in there about a dragon and some robots and they took him on an adventure to some of the wonders of the world and then when they were finished with their tour, they helped him take over the whole world.
Now, that is a good use of minions.
That’s dreaming big.
When did I stop doing that?
What is it that I really wish I could do?
And I know.
My dreams are bigger than a spotless house and a little bit of downtime.
I might not be able to accomplish them in a week and (unfortunately) I don’t have any help from minions, but I can still plot and plan and dream and think big.
