Humanity has been conditioned to cope with scarcity.
Throughout history, we’ve had to go to extraordinary lengths to survive; our whole story was written by people trying to get their share of everything from money and information to opportunities for genuine growth.
Somehow, we’ve managed to find ourselves in the age of abundance. We have more money, information, experience and choice than any other time before, and we can decide exactly what we want our lives to be like – what our reality is.
We are in a position of enormous privilege, power and possibility – so why are we still teaching as if information is scarce?
In the past, education was limited because our access to facts and resources was equally restricted, but now, we all have access to infinite information, and that means we have to expand our approach to education.
We need to develop our abilities to adapt so that we can thrive in the fluid future we’re creating, and that means we need to grow our social skills, understanding of true wellness, ability to build relationships, financial responsibility and flexibility so that we can fully explore the potential of exponential technology.
