CLF founder Chris Nowinski has a goal of using the PSA to encourage children to wait until they are older to play tackle football.

How "should" and "need to" kill your motivation
We sap our motivation and energy when we keep telling ourselves what we need to do, should be doing or don't have time to do, writes Kristin Hendrix.
