The Element. How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything.

I’ve just finished reading The Element. How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, by Ken Robinson, Ph.D. With Lou Aronica.

Ken Robinson clearly outlines how finding “our element”, our passion, the thing that we were meant to do is often the distinction between great success and mediocrity, or even failure in life.

He clearly illustrates how our education systems need to be completely reformed to catch up with a world that is changing more rapidly every day, and how the current academic model is not serving enough students, resulting in a terrible waste of human talent.

This waste of talent cannot continue if we are to survive long into the future.
