Little Bets: Think Differently by Peter Sims

“Our education system places great emphasis on teaching us about facts that are already known, such as historical information or scientific tables, and then testing us in order to measure how much we’ve retained about that body of knowledge. Those skills work perfectly well for many situations, but not when doing something new. Or creative. Or original. They certainly won’t help us invent the future.

As education and creativity researcher and author Sir Ken Robinson puts it, ‘We are educating people out of their creativity.’ But it’s still there. And unleashing our creativity, however deeply it’s hidden, begins with little bets.”

This is why I support students to pursue their dreams and what they have natural interests in.

As education and creativity researcher and author Sir Ken Robinson puts it, ‘We are educating people out of their creativity.’ But it’s still there. And unleashing our creativity, however deeply it’s hidden, begins with little bets.”

it's difficult to buy this conclusion...

facts that are already known propel us to invent the future.  we don't have to reinvent the wheel anymore.

new frontiers in medical research, such as new medicines, are there because basic information or scientific tables are already there, passed on by previous generations who opened doors for us.  we have to learn the basics.

we have computers because those who invented the future know basic math and logic.

sure, we may not need history once we work as accountants, but what accountant will not heed the lessons of enron and madoff as part of accounting's history?  and do i have to be an astronomer to know where the north star is?

i will always believe in liberal arts education as a foundation for inventing the future.  we have to be generalists first before we can become specialists.

I guess truly creative people have an instinctive way of making sterile knowledge bounce off them.
