Ideas From Ken Robinson’s Find Your Element

In this 1 minute PAREable, discover ideas on how not to kill creativity.

Actionable Do:

  • Expose yourself to as many new opportunities as possible to discover aptitudes you may not have realized.
  • Strive to have a growth mindset. It will allow you to develop and improve your abilities.
  • Find your passions, things that you do without noticing the passing of time.
  • Forge your own path and understanding of your happiness instead of blindly seeking wealth, immediate gratification or other people’s definition of happiness.

Actionable Don’t:

  • Don’t plan your life when you’re so young because life is unpredictable.
  • Don’t assume you are bad at something because you performed poorly in that subject in school. Standardized tests only measure one kind of human intelligence while schools only cater to a few learning styles.

Thinkable:

  • Every person is special and different because of their genetic makeup (every human who ever existed in history has their own genes) and their environment (everyone has their unique mix of family, friends, time, and location of their upbringing).
  • If you accept that you can’t predict or control the future, you will discover many new opportunities.
  • Experiencing positive emotions (from your passion) has been proven to reduce stress, reduce chronic pain and addictions, and improve sleep and concentration, among many other positive benefits.
  • Finding a group of people who share your passion can be very beneficial, or even necessary, for both you and other members of the group at realizing your goals.
