It’s the little things that often make a big difference. A very small act or tiny change can have a profound impact. So, I’ve stopped thinking BIG and started thinking little. I’m too worn out and lazy to implement any big ideas that require lots of mind share and time. Quick, easy and simple yet highly impactful – that’s in my wheelhouse.
I stumbled across Family Dinner Questions on Pinterest. I almost had to break up with Pinterest because I’ve gotten mixed up with some bum pinners…lately it’s miles of wedding hair, tattoos and dog photos. WTH? When I saw Family Dinner Questions, I was back in the game.
Here’s how it works. You get a jar. You print out the questions. At dinner each night, a question is chosen from the jar and each person answers. This has been a difference maker at our house. It has introduced some fun into dinnertime and my kids look forward to this new ritual. Their behavior is better knowing that the Family Dinner Question is coming up and the questions launch real conversations. Quick, easy and simple yet highly impactful. Boom.
Last week, I made a Family Dinner Questions jar for a friend who hosted book club and gave it to her as a hostess gift. I’m also going to make one as a new neighbor gift for a family that recently moved in.
It can be stressful and daunting to think big so shake it up, Smarties, and think small! Shout out to the moms at HowDoesShe.com for socializing this!
