[Manifesto] on Education by @LeadersSlovakia #NGLS

Hiya SCG-ers,

many of you were and are constantly pinging me, because you do miss shipments on #IS. I do admit that I have disappeared from online shipping for solid 4 months, but believe me it was all worth it. Before I will start to share all those life-changing moments and lessons I have learned ‘offline’; let me share with you (so far) the biggest shipment of my professional career: Manifesto on Education created by folks attending third NGLS Conference, which took place in April this year. It is also bit symbolic time as school are opening its gates for new term this week again, so perhaps this manifesto can inspire those who have guts to change something in their worlds. Enjoy!

I was simply Turning Pro from being an Amateur. What exactly do I mean by Turning Pro? Let the author of “turning pro” phrase explain it to you. Go, Steven Pressfield go -> Guys, enjoy hand picked 50 quotes from just self – published (I love the “self” bit of publishing a lot!) & must read book by @SPressfieldTurning Pro. [Read more…]
