Young kids fascinate me. I have two of my own, both under the age of 5.

There is never a dull moment. 

Sometimes I just sit there and watch them. I study their curious expressions, their unlimited energy and their abundant thirst for knowledge in every subject ("Why?" "Why?" "Why?" "Why?"). 

Here are 11 toddler traits that you should be emulating if you want to be on top of the sales leaderboard:

  1. They beat the sun up every day 
  2. They are extraordinarily curious
  3. They don't take no for an answer 
  4. They come up with creative solutions (if they get a “no” from Mom, they go tell Dad that Mom said “yes”)
  5. They have an incredible imagination 
  6. They never give up
  7. They don’t let their mistakes keep them down 
  8. They are always trying something new
  9. They never stop learning  
  10. They don't hold grudges 
  11. They have an enormous amount of energy 

Don't forget that toddlers also have a lot of traits that you should NOT emulate, but we'll leave that topic for another day. For now, if you can focus on these 11 traits, you will be happier at work AND in life. 

We call that a double bonus. 

Which one of these toddler traits do you need to work on most?
