Simply Good Life — Let Them Fight | Start at 9:18 | Fall Asleep Faster

Hi friends, another week full of workshop. I had a presentation for 250 school kids about “Future Skills — How Creativity is More Important than Good Grades”. What a fun to see them become more and more creative in just a few minutes.
And here’s my newsletter this week:

Different Pair of Eyes

I try to follow Marcel Proust’s advice whenever I see old places again:

“The only true voyage would be not to travel through a hundred different lands with the same pair of eyes, but to see the same land through a hundred different pairs of eyes.” — MARCEL PROUST

When I see places again I decide to be interested new things like nature, people, architecture. So great to see old places with a different pair of eyes.

Those that got thorough with their to-do lists and wrote down a number of details did even better, falling asleep 15 minutes faster than everyone else.

Teach Kids How To Argue

Instead of trying to prevent arguments we should teach kids how to have healthy disagreements.

This article give a list of fantastic rules:

• Frame it as a debate, rather than a conflict.
• Argue as if you’re right but listen as if you’re wrong.
• Make the most respectful interpretation of the other person’s perspective.
• Acknowledge where you agree with your critics and what you’ve learned from them.

If kids never get exposed to disagreement, we’ll end up limiting their creativity.

Truths

“There are three truths. Your truth, my truth, and the real truth.” —
Chinese Proverb

Learning this helped me to accept that my “truths” are wrong for others. I completely stopped trying to evangelize people of “my fantastic truths”.

Have a nice week, all!
