Are you working for the money or doing work you love? Work should be like play when you are doing work that you are good at! Then you can make all the money you want!
Golden Ages that bring a boom in prosperity for everyone are littered throughout history.
I have always been fascinated by history. Particularly, western civilization, philosophy, and the meaning of life.
There is so much we can learn from the past. We often think that our problems are unique to our age, when, in reality, every stage of human history shares a common human experience.
All young people think they are special and different from their parents, and, likewise, older generations feel the younger ones think they know everything!
When I was 26, I visited Greece, Egypt, and Israel (among other places). I crawled inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, strolled among the ruins of the Parthenon in Athens, lingered in the Agora where Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle congregated. I walked around the old city of Jerusalem on top of the original walls.

Ask most young people what they want from life and they will tell you money and fame. Landmark 75-year study of what actually matters reveals lessons that aren’t about wealth or fame or working harder and harder. The clearest message that we get is this:
Good relationships keep us happier and healthier.
Harvard’s Grant & Glueck study tracked the physical and emotional well-being of 268 male graduates from Harvard, as well as 456 poor men growing up in Boston from 1939 to 2014. Multiple generations of researchers analyzed brain scans, blood samples, self-reported surveys and interactions of these men to compile their findings.
The conclusions are simple. Close relationships can make or break a person’s well-being, according to Robert Waldinger, Harvard professor of psychology and director of the center that sponsored the study.
The study reveals the following lessons:
Zone Learning is a way of teaching that taps the natural genius of the learner. Using these principles, the traditional classroom and student/teacher relationship are reinvented.
The joy of learning returns and a sense of awe, discovery, and wonder are ignited. More information is learned and retained, with a dramatically increased ability to recall as well as apply the learning to get results!
These ten principles will multiply results by 10x to 100x!
The next time you step into a classroom as a student or a teacher apply these ten principles and watch out for the transformation!
