Trying to push against others is a recipe for failure. Work with others and find common ground to do so. And when the world comes pushing against you, hold your frame…
People’s opinions aren’t generally based in facts, but on the feelings we have around information. Instead, we “drop faulty beliefs not when they’re disproven by scientists or lawyers, but when—and only when—they cost us our relationships, our professional standing, our freedom, and even our chances for survival.”
People, especially children, need to be physically engaged in the world to learn. Isolation in front of a computer screen isn’t going to work.
