There is something exciting about checking something off of a list. A certain sense of completion. Only while visiting my niece did I realize all ages love checkmarks!
As kids, we likely had some sort of goal to reach. Maybe it was graduating from diapers, starting kindergarten or saving up to buy something special. With some of these goals came a chart. One that we could check off as we completed parts of our mission.
So the next time you get exciting about crossing something off of your list, remember where it all began.
