Things Indians are collectively doing wrong

Demanding that children do their best at everything they do.

  1. Demanding that a child always does his best converts a child to a person who only attempts things he can excel at.

  2. A child starts avoiding things he can’t give his best to. Because if he can’t give his best to something, he won’t give it anything at all.

  3. It converts a child to an observer. He just sits there observing everybody, not participating. To get the maximum out of life, it is important to participate.

  4. It makes a child sweat about insignificant things because he is always under performance pressure.

  5. It takes the focus away from “just doing.” A person who acts is better than the person who just sits and observes, even if he fails in his act.


Demanding that a child always does his best becomes synonymous with “don’t fail,” converting a child to a non-doer.
