Do you remember how you were as a kid? The random excitement over seemingly trivial things? Do you remember how you did things just for the fun of it? A game, a drawing, a song, just about anything. The outcome didn’t have to be perfect. There didn’t even have to be an outcome for all… Continue reading Get off my cloud!
I recently came across a very interesting analogy in a discussion between esteemed educator Sir Kenneth Robinson and mystic Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev.
