Education & Society: Logic vs. Creativity

May I ask you, what is your dream job? What are you passionate about?  Does your current job integrate your passions? How about your experience with education? If not, why? I’ve been asking myself this for years. Now it’s been almost twenty years since I graduated high school and I’m doing what I love. However, I’m unable to put in the time that I would like because I have to spend most of my time at the job that pays my bills but is of little interest to me.

Likewise, so many others are experiencing the same ordeal.  More than likely due to our society’s perspective that the only careers worthwhile are those that are money-centric. This indoctrination is present within our current education system and needs to be addressed sooner than later. Fine and performing arts are not credible in the business world and as a result students are taught in school to be more science and business minded. In addition, our country’s financial crisis causes students to attend college acquiring a degree that will lead them to making more money. However, their passion projects are left in the dust and they aren’t as financially prosperous as expected.

That being said, not everyone is unfortunate in this way. Some may excel in the business and logical world. My point is that we are a left brain (logic and reason) dominant society. If our education system embraced both left and right (intuitive and subjective) brain activities as well as diverse styles of learning, students would excel and develop “super learning”. Super learning is the capability to learn and comprehend at a faster rate. Furthermore, I’d like to argue if left and right brain are used equally we’d be more receptive to different styles of learning and career paths. Both hemispheres of our brain should consistently be engaged in order to live our lives at its fullest potential, which by default, our country will thrive as well.

Climate Change: Humanity’s Demise?

So truthfully, we all secretly (or for the morbid – openly) ponder what will be the demise of human existence. Climate change is in fact an increasing fear and an 11th hour issue to all animals on Earth. It’s prime time hurricane season and there have already been billions of dollars in damages and lives lost due to hurricane Harvey and Irma. This is not to mention historical wildfires along the west and other natural disasters. There is no time to ignore the reality of climate change. We must act now!

Nevertheless, many of us wonder what we can do on our own to help combat climate change. Similarly, will our collective efforts even work? A favorite organization of the movement, Climate Reality Project, has tons of information on this very topic. Here’s a cool video by Bill Nye the Science Guy explaining the effects of climate change and how to reduce our carbon foot print. Don’t forget to check out Millennial Logic’s episode on this topic as well.

Bill Nye’s Advice:
