A valuable tool when a mess exists, as the porous substance absorbs just about anything. We’ve all been there and this little tool gathers as much of the mess as possible.
So think about those words, “absorbs just about anything”. And relate that to your kids, your nieces/nephews or those you know who are in the sponge age. Isn’t it amazing to almost feel their brains working to understand and gather information; a powerful time in their young life.
So let’s not stop there. Let us as adults continue to be a sponge and gather information like we once did as kids. There is really no reason why we shouldn’t, as we have the capability and the capacity to process more.
In my assessment, we learn everyday. We meet new people who teach us and inform us on things we did not know the day prior. We are still being a sponge. In our careers, we challenge ourselves to go beyond the boundaries and think outside the box to sell more, create new or advance our position. We are still being a sponge.
So even though our kids and our youth tend to be absorbing at an extreme rate, with very little sign of overflow; it’s safe to say we have taken a calculated approach to our absorption and intake. Call it an age thing.
Don’t forget to wring out the sponge every now and again.
