seth godin - tedxyouth

train us to become consumers

what people do quite naturally...
if it's work - they figure out how to do less
if it's art - they figure out how to do more

the only thing we're willing to talk about... to care about.. to touch...
we say we can't do

anything worth memorizing is worth looking up

resume is proof that you have complied, it's useless now

go do something interesting and ask if you need help

are we asking kids to collect dots or connect dots

1. great success in school leads to happiness and success
2. great parents have kids who do well in school

persistance in the face of a skeptical authority figure - priceless
if you care enough about your work to be criticized for it.. you've done a good days work

what is school for?
