Lessons from the Lemonade Stand

Remember your first lemonade stand? I remember wanting to have a lemonade stand because it would be fun to do with my friends. We would make the lemonade imagining all of the thirsty people who would be stopping by for a refreshing cup. Later, we would ride our bikes together to the local store and each pick out a favorite treat with the money we earned. The satisfaction was in creating the lemonade stand and playing at being lemonade sellers. The money was secondary; a reward for our work.

What If you started creating from the mindset of play and just for the fun of it? Maybe then you could quench your thirst and take that long over-due bike ride.
