The Element

How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything
by Ken Robinson | 288 pages

You might have caught Sir Ken’s genius energy in his brilliant TED talk. Not only is he one of the world’s leading experts on creativity, he’s an all-around cool guy and... he’s a KNIGHT! How cool is that?! That’s pretty saucy I say. :)


“My aim in writing [this book] is to offer a richer version of human ability and creativity and of the benefits to us all of connecting properly with our individual talents and passions. This book is about issues that are of fundamental importance in our lives and in the lives of our children, our students, and the people we work with. I use the term the Element to describe the place where the things we love to do and the things we are good at come together. I believe it is essential that each of us find his or her Element, not simply because it will make us more fulfilled but because, as the world evolves, the very future of our communities and institutions will depend on it.”

This book goes into depth on how you can tap into “‘The Element”—that “place where the things we love to do and the things we are good at come together” and our lives take on a magical awesomeness.

The book’s packed with goodness and I’m excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas so let’s jump in!
