The Path Less Traveled

Haven't had much writing inspiration lately until now. So I'm sitting in a hotel room on Facebook after finishing up this crazy awesome business seminar in California. I came across this TEDx video link (which is below) about this 13 year old kid and the way he's been educated through life experiences rather than the traditional schooling. It's very out of the box and strange right? But the more I listened to what he was saying the more I thought about how it related to the things I had actually just been learning about over the last 4 days in this seminar. I think its cool for a person or a business to recognize their needs for growth, even if it seems unorthodox to most, and go after it. After all, its quite often that safe and traditional thinking that leaves us short of our potential. If we want to have a richer life, and it doesn't have to be financially, it's important to get out of the box often and create those opportunities for growth.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome.

Watch this video to see what the mind of a 13 year old can do by thinking creatively and trusting in himself and others. It's truly inspiring and something very cool to think about.
