“Diversity is the pulse of creativity, innovation and human life.”

六月 22, 2009

it’s a groomy monday. work is slow. i don’t have much work to do again.

i opened up my google reader again after ignoring it for months. after browsing through several articles on the RISD blog, i paused in front of a 30 min long video and clicked ‘play’. it’s the commencement address by Sir Ken Robinson on May 30th, 2009. and this video [watch] made my day!

not only his speech was greatly thoughtful and entertaining (like a British stand-up in a way, and his British accent makes him sound even more intelligent and humorous), most importantly i found as if this speech was made out just for me. his speech is around creativity and how talents + passion + determining and pursuing = success. Ken Robinson also just published a book called “The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything“. The element is what he identifies as “the point where the activities individuals enjoy and are naturally good at come together.”

today, i feel a strong need of finding my element, and ‘pursuing’ is the missing part of my equation to success.

my favorite quote of his speech is:

“Diversity is the pulse of creativity, innovation and human life.” — Sir Ken Robinson
