Education, limits and conscience…

I have seen a few videos about the paradigms of the education model and how we lives… i cannot stop thinking about that things are really wrong about how we are educated, how we manage our life and how we will be fine working in the others dreams, but what about ours ?. Often when people grow smile less, get depressed and not all of them are able to see the light and get some happiness… this is not ok and should not be something common…

When you are a child your imagination does not have limits, when you grow you are instructed to limit the scope of your imagination to what you just have to learn, i do not say that teaching is bad, i say that the knowledge must be share but also people should be inspired to be connected  with the “creativity”, I consider the creativity a state of collective conscience where everything already exists, when you “create something” you are just being able to pick up a piece of that conscience, commonly named an “idea”.

Also if we see how we commonly work i would describe two scenarios: people working in a company and people working by their own. When you work for a company you are mostly working in the other person dreams, at least you share the same vision and feel part of what is being done. For people doing their own stuff  or working as independent, they are trying to reach their dreams. There is nothing wrong with the mentioned scenarios, except when you do not share the same vision or you are not able to “create” due to “limits” imposed.

Said that, i can conclude that the main problem is the education model, because you are educated about how to think, what to accept and then what to do to work. Would not be a coincidence that some successful people in the tech area broke their traditional educational model and then were able to create great things ?: Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg.. no one of them continue their studies, they just took ideas, connected points, imagine an improved work scenario, connected people.. etc.  I do not know if they were or are happy, but i am sure that they are satisfied with their archived goals…

Talking about educational models I cannot omit to mention One Laptop Per Child project, just to reminder it is not about cheap laptops, it is about access to the information and have an extra tool to help to explore and create.. you should review the success of this project with children in different countries…leave them a time alone and you will realize the amazing things that they do…

As this is just “my truth, I would suggest to watch the following videos, get your own conclusions:

This is not just about do what you want to do, it is about to wake up your conscience and listen your self… we can do something better for our kids and our selfs…
