When growing up, Seer, it is ideal and relevant that someone should explain life
to you comprehensively
enough; but this is usually not the case. Hardly do you get someone qualified enough to tell you what’s really
, and show you how to organise your life to be more efficient, make great impact and enjoy true happiness
. What you likely get is the classical one, “Go to school, study hard, pass your exams well and get a good, well-paying job!
” Good advice; however, not enough! Prof. Sir, William Arthur Lewis once said, “Education and schooling are not the same thing. What goes on inside the schools are not always education, and the result may well be to reduce productive capacity rather than to increase it
.” He was largely right, and that is why the maxim, “Life is lived forwards but understood backwards
” is largely true, and therefore worrying!
Research indicates that majority of people underestimate their true capabilities and do not use much of their inborn potential; most of us settle for far less than we deserve and are indeedcapable of achieving in life. This has variously been blamed on the over-emphasis on formal education to the inadvertent neglect of informal education.
This book was written in response; to adequately address these issues.
