I just finished the audiobook of Sir Ken Robinson's, The Element: How finding your passion changes everything and I am impressed. I discovered Robinson through his TEDTalk that I referred to a while back, "Do Schools Kill Creativity?", and his book backs up what was stated in his talk. He recommends a change in education away from the hierarchy that we currently know of (Math, Science, Languages, Humanities and Arts at the bottom) in favor of a more creativity-centered system that allows children discover what they love.
He also relates many stories of many well-known people and how they discovered their talent, their niche, their element or their love. It's surprising to find out that many of these people did not come about this talent through their formal education, but after dropping out of school and pursuing what they loved or they stayed in all the way through to find out that they were bored with what they were doing.
I do have the hard copy coming from Amazon as well as first book, Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative. I highly recommend The Element if you truly want some stories of inspiration and maybe learn a little something about yourself. The audio is great because he does have a good voice for reading and he is humorous. Pick it up or check it out.
