Lessons From LEGOs

Life might be less complicated for all of us if we each received our own LEGO kit at birth.

Yes, I realize there is a choking hazard for children under three. But when you are old enough, you can learn a lot from LEGOs.

I have learned that:

- Size doesn't matter. When stepped on in the dark, a 2X2 LEGO brick causes the same amount of pain as a 2X8 brick.

- All LEGO men are created equal (1.5625 inches tall). What they become is limited only by imagination.

- There is strength in numbers. When the bricks stick together, great things can be accomplished.

- Playtime is important. Sometimes it doesn't matter what you are building, as long as you're having fun.

- Disaster happens. But the pieces can be put back together again.

- Every brick has a purpose. Some are made for a specific spot - most can adapt almost anywhere - but every one will fit somewhere.

- Color doesn't matter. A blue brick will fit in the same space as a red brick.

- No one is indispensable. If one brick is unavailable, another can take its place.

- It doesnt always turn out as planned. Sometimes it turns out better. If it doesn't, you can always try again.
