Spending time with a little baby over the weekend was a splendid experience. Here is a photo of a precious seven-month old who offered free lessons regarding skill development. When this seven-month old “grows up”, I hope he doesn’t forget everything he learned as a baby. Perhaps it will keep him on track if ever he should find himself in the midst of a career transition.
Smile at people.
Grasp an object and hold on.
Hold your head steady and/or high.
Respond with delight when you hear your name.
Do certain tasks without support, once you have shown mastery.
Convert babble into communication that generates desired results and outcomes.
Jump for joy about something, no matter what your numerical age.
Exhibit competence in staying on task until you reach your target goal.
What skills will you develop in 2014?
