The purpose of education should not be to correct people,it should be about telling people that’s it is okay to be different.
Just because I don’t have the right materials doesn’t mean I can’t make a building.
Just because I don’t possess skill and knowledge doesn’t mean I can’t learn some.
It’s futile to think that everyone should grow up a the same pace.
Some people run fast,some run slow.
Some take risks,some make careful decisions.
Some are certain,some are uncertain.
Trying to take away someone uniqueness for the sake of generality. Please.We are not plants.
The school which takes in the best students and boast about raising the best students is no great school.
Opposite of science is common sense.Nothing harms the essence of systematic study more than belief in untested claims.
Unless you spread and pass on your knowledge you cannot build a legacy.
As a leader,standing at the top can make your people’s issues seem miniscule.
Only when you stand beside your people,you can really help them solve their problems.
There are only two ways to counter a problem: Either you solve it or forget it’s existence,at least for the time being.
First one is a very palpable option! What about the latter? Solving is what everyone of us try to do.But sometimes we need to forget.We cannot do everything all the time,at least alone.Over-stressing doesn’t help you face problems but preparing for stress does.You sometimes need to wait for the right time and opportunity.
Isn’t our education system a great example for it? We don’t teach college level math to a middle schooler – not because they can’t solve it – but because they can’t solve it RIGHT NOW.
If we could solve all of our problems in one day,we wouldn’t have any problems on the next day.But that doesn’t happen,does it? If you can solve something,solve it.If you can’t solve something,prepare for it.
One’s experience shouldn’t be judged on the basis of how complexly they think,but how simply they answer.
Explaining math through numbers vs real life events has a big difference.
You can force someone to work all day long.But the efforts will be the result of compliance to the order rather than fulfilling engagement to work.
That’s why we hate to be managed.May it be an educational institute or workplace or home.We feel bound to rules with no room for flexibility.
Authority suppresses us when in fact autonomy must surround us.Only engagement and honest commitment to work can take us on to the path of innovation.Compliance will only help us survive,but not live life to the fullest.
