It’s a great rule – and one every lean thinker should follow. When four-year-old Somi gets a new toy, she’s required to donate one of her own toys to make room. So when she asked for a toy baby-carrier while Bob and I were camping out in her family home waiting for the Waldo Canyon Fire Evacuation to lift, her mom asked,
- Which toy will you sacrifice to get this one?
She thought for a moment and responded::
- Meryl and Bob?
Honest. Humbling. And hilarious. Maybe she wasn’t enjoying the extra attention we provided as much as we imagined!
