When we don’t know what to do or where to start we simply imitate. The same is true with kids.
“No Such Thing As Bad Student, Only Bad Teacher.” – The Karate Kid
We teach things in the opposite way. Though we know there is a better way, which takes time to practice, we never opt for it. Just because something worked (quick fix) doesn’t mean it’s a solution in the long run.
The following is a short list we do in the opposite way.
competition before participation
luck before efforts
speed before perseverance
hate before love
cheating before trusting
to talk before listen
success before failure
death before life
