My four year old gleefully grabs my measuring tape, stretches it out to full length on the family room rug, lies down next to it, and announces that she measures Four Years Tall.
It’s like that funny quote:
‘How high are you,’
‘Hi, how are you’”
I never realized
That for four year olds,
Or at least for my four year old,
It’s a confusing distinction.
My daughter asks everyone she meets
“How tall are you?”
Which is a surprising question
Because you can pretty much tell how tall someone is
Just by looking at them.
But it only gets more surprising
When in response to their puzzled look
“I’m four. How tall are you?”
And it gets me thinking about your Elevator Pitch.
Because so many people
Think that they are being asked
To justify their expertise
When in fact
They are being asked
To be clear about their results.
