Journey to Purpose

October 22, 2012 at 9:51 pm 3 comments

I had the privilege of attending the recent Manhattan Beach TEDx Conference Journey to Purpose: Dream. Educate. Thrive. I felt so inspired listening to the speakers that I’ve walked away with a new purpose myself…to cause a transformation in education, to work to move 21st century students out of a 19th century education system, and to put creativity back into learning so that every young person is able to critically think for themselves and develop their innate talents and gifts. But more on that later.

Below are my favorite “nuggets” from the day I feel are worthy of sharing for the greater good:

  • Rather than wonder what your purpose is, live a life that’s “on” purpose.
  • The first follower makes the lone nut a leader!
  • Humans are fundamentally curious.
  • We’re in a “knowledge economy” and collaboration is vital.
  • “Everything works out in the end. If it isn’t working out, then it isn’t the end.” from Marigold Hotel

What’s your purpose?

    Wonderful journey.
    Your are an old soul, which is why geniuses love each other.
    We want to move to Bali for our son Aaron to attend Greenschool.
    Also a TED inspired idea from the founder, John Hardy, look up his TED talk on Greenschool.
    Wish you all the best and happy repurposing, it is healthy for the soul,
    Dave Laz
