Summary
In this companion to the international bestseller The Element, Sir Ken Robinson returns to the subject of his celebrated TED talks, offering a practical guide to discovering your passions and natural aptitudes, and finding the point at which the two meet: your element. This book offers the tools, techniques, resources and advice you need to discover the depth of your abilities and identify opportunities for change. It looks at the conditions that enable you to find yourself: why it's so important to connect with people who share your element and why your attitudes may be holding you back. Through a range of stories from his own experience and those of people from all walks of life, Ken Robinson explores the diversity of intelligence and the power of imagination and creativity. For some, finding their element has brought fame and success, like Ellen McArthur's unusual journey from growing up in a landlocked ex-mining town to achieving sailing glory, or Chris Jordan who became a critically acclaimed photographer after abandoning his career as a corporate lawyer. However many of the inspiring stories are of ordinary people who read the first book and were moved to share how its principles have transformed their lives: the man who found fulfilment as a magician after years of working as a computer engineer, or the woman who discovered that professional success was nothing compared to the happiness she found setting up an NGO for underprivileged children
