Should we do what we do as if our life depends on it?

Apple is better than anyone at making things – “it just works”.


Do we know what we do best? No, really, do we know deep down what lights our fire?

Watching this Ken Robinson TED talk, it hit me less than half way into his topic (education). The educational system is only as good as the teachers.

(Duh. But alas, knowing and doing are two polar opposites. And therein lies opportunity)

And the best teachers are not there to deliver content only, the best teachers:

  • stimulate, provoke, challenge
  • ask, facilitate, inspire
  • incite, encourage, excite

And what I’m adding, is that they teach as though their life depended on it.
