Overview

We tend to think that adults know everything, and children need to learn from them. But what if it was the other way around? According to Paul Lindley, adults could often improve their lives by 'growing down' instead of continuing to grow up.

Paul Lindley earned a PhD in Chartered Accountancy and worked closely with Nickelodeon before diving into the entrepreneurial world and starting Ella's Kitchen – a food company that creates healthy meals for children. As Lindley's best critics often turned out to be his own kids, he realized that thinking like a toddler could benefit his business and overall life.

Little Wins takes the reader through where and why adults go wrong in their thinking by fixating on the past and future, while toddlers function best in simplicity. This book shows how adults can live a more fulfilling life by adopting toddler characteristics, such as confidence and creativity, diving into situations without self doubt, never giving up, and above all, having fun.

"Toddlers aren't just trainee adults, they are extraordinary people in their own right: their creativity, curiosity, determination, ambition and sociability should be the envy of many high-flying professionals."
