…. do what? be what?
Are we wired at birth to become something in particular? No. There’s no evidence of this. So what will you become? What decides this? You do.
Education plays a role here. Education’s role is to help you figure “you” out. Figure out what you will become, because there is no hard-wiring for that?
How can education do this? What’s the process?
Listen – start by not being so prescriptive. Start by allowing. And stop pushing thought-mugging textbooks and drone-inducing worksheets and top-down curriculum. The educators job is to facilitate growth, optimal development and human flourishing. That’s lofty. That’s worthy.
We’re wired to BE, to become. Let that happen, light that path.
