Want your kid to be successful when they grow up? Make them take out the garbage and clean the dishes. How come? Well, you may have heard of the Harvard Grant Study, a study which has followed the lives of Harvard University graduates since 1938 to see what makes some of the most successful people on the planet so darn perfect.
So far, the study has identified two things that people need from a young age in order to be happy and successful: love and work ethic.
Based on the lives of the 724 high-achievers who have been part of the study, including the likes of President Kennedy and Ben Bradlee, the easiest way to achieve the latter is to give kids work from a young age.
