    We send our kids to school and obsess about their test scores, their behavior and theirability to fit in. We post a help wanted ad and look for experience, famous colleges and a history of avoiding failure. We invest in companies based on how they did last quarter, not on what they’re going to do tomorrow. So why are we surprised when it all falls apart? Our economy is not static, but we act as if it is. Your position in the world is defined by what you instigate, how you provoke, and what you learn from the events you cause. In a worldfilled with change, that’s what matters - your ability to create and learn from change.

    Overall

    Start things means Poke the Box.
    If the cost of losing is less than being boring than poke the box, start do something.
    If you start something which has no risk, No opportunity to succeed, it does not count.
    Poke the box, succeed, if you fail, try again; poke the box until you get success.
    Encourage kids to organize clubs and their own extracurricular activities. This will help them to become initiators, start things and implement ideas to get success.
    Overall a good read. I will suggest reading Linchpin first by the same author and then Poke the Box.
    Go Poke the Box and get what you want.
