Wow! This is amazing. I just love what he says about creativity, math, talent, spirituality. He really is brilliant. I really enjoyed this, it's 1hr long, but definitely worth. Below is his video on Changing the Educational Paradigms and it's also fabulous

Ken Robinson believes that everyone is born with extraordinary capability. So what happens to all that talent as we bump through life, getting by, but never realizing our true potential?

For most of us the problem isn’t that we aim too high and fail - it’s just the opposite - we aim too low and succeed.

We need to find that magic spot where our natural talent meets our personal passion. This means we need to know ourselves better. Whilst we content ourselves with doing what we’re competent at, but don’t truly love, we’ll never excel. And, according to Ken, finding purpose in our work is essentially to knowing who we really are.

Get ready to unleash your inner fervor as Ken takes to our pulpit to inspire you to follow your passion.
