Several years ago, in the process of motivating him, I drew a chart.
X axis: Years
Y axis: Delta of what Adi knows and what Amma knows
The graph looked like this.
Even during those years, I knew his EQ was very high compared to mine. So, I didn’t dare to draw any charts about that.
I explained to him that he had to work hard and work smart to beat me. To target to cross the zero-point of the delta and into the positive territory.
My arrogance and my complete lack of knowledge of raising kids lead me to believe that it might take him a few decades to cross the zero-point.
Little did I know.
Nowadays, not a day goes by, that I stand humbled.
Today, he brought home something in Spanish. It looks like Greek and Latin (pun intended) to me. I am sure whatever he has written is great. I just don’t understand it.
Given his EQ, I know he will never draw a graph show Delta of what Amma knows and what Adi knows.
Which zone are you in? Positive or Negative?
