An inspiring TED talk by Ken Robinson (2006):
Two take-aways from this:
- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. As we get older, we’re conditioned to avoid making mistakes. However, without mistakes, how do we ever create anything new?
- People experience the world differently. What works for you, may not work for your children. Some kids work well with their minds, others with their bodies. Forcing a square plug into a round hole never works – let people be who they are meant to be.
