Thinking about how we give back

A few months back I presented to a group of companies on the topic of personal development and productivity*. Following a brief presentation, the room engaged in an amazing debate about personal development, our personal reading lists, evening and morning routines, exercise, hacks, apps and so on.

Based on a collective frustration about how lacking the formal education system is in some of the topics above, we decided to explore how we might ‘give back’ in that regard. Initial ideas ranged from developing a brief class for children on thinking and the mind, through to books etc.

To keep this moving forward, Dom Moorhouse and I briefly spent some time brainstorming how we might tie some of these concepts together in a framework (see main image). Early days yet….but I will post here on progress.

*What started off as a specific work assignment has become somewhat of a journey and obsession these days.
