In order to make anything a reality, you have to dream about it first.
We love you TED Talks. We love your geeks, your smarts, your innovation . . . and your childishness.
Recently, I cozied up to a speech by Andora Svitak (video below) and though she was 12 at the time she made the talk she stirs the controversy pot. See if you agree with her in your quest for creativity.
Age Has Nothing to Do With It
Agreed. Can anyone make a difference? Can anyone be creative? Sure. You betcha.
Agreed again. Kids see the sunlight. Kids play. Kids are positive. Hmmm. Two points kids.
Students Should Teach Their Teachers
Debatable. I learn a lot from kids, but not all kids. I’m curious how you think this would, or would not, play itself out. Leave a comment for discussion.
Kids Dream About Perfection
Agreed. Rose colored glasses. Pollyanna. Call it what you will, kids haven’t racked up the thousands of no’s and other roadblocks to NOT think perfection is possible.
Our generation’s ceiling is the next generation’s floor. In other words, we prepare future creatives for growth to far exceed our accomplishments. How well are we doing?
