What’s Your Passion?


Finished reading Ken Robinson’s book, The Element. It’s an engaging, interesting and fairly easy read that’s loaded with “inspirational” stories/case studies of people (mostly famous) who managed to find their element – usually in spite of the education they received in school. It underscored a lot of my feelings about education and the need for reform.

I have to warn you that if you’re looking for a “self-help” guide, this isn’t it. It’s more of a what it (the element) is and why we need it book than a how to find it manual. That didn’t matter to me but it may to you.

And what exactly is the element?

“The Element is the meeting point between natural aptitude and personal passion.”

Have you found what you love to do? Are you good at it?
