Finding Your Element: Saturday Inspirational Books

In Sir Ken Robinson’s bio on his website he is lauded as a “leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human resources in education and in business.” his 2006, TED talk is still the most visited video in the TED archives.

I’ve included the video here to give you a flavor of this man’s work…and to urge you to seek out his books, with his newest release Finding Your Element: How to Discover Your Talents and Passions and Transform Your Life.

Many people talk about reforming public education…but I don’t think that is necessary for it will be buried in the dust of the transformation shaking the core of society.

In the new world rising we are all artist (see The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?  by Seth Godin).

Enjoy the video and the humor of Sir Ken Robinson as he delivers this landmark address.

Quote on Books and Reading


“Lost in my dreams, I somehow cross at the traffic signals, bumping into street lamps or people, yet moving onward, exuding fumes of beer and grime, yet smiling, because my briefcase is full of books and that very night I expect them to tell me things about myself I don’t know.”
Source:  Bohumil Hrabal
