Given the behavioral changes that occur when people are taught higher order thinking skills, imagine the world we would live in if we taught every person who emerged from higher education higher order thinking skills.

Dear Networker - Are you Creating a Real Network?

I am addicted to LinkedIn. I come to this site ten times a day. Though, I am not happy about it, but I know, it's a thousand times better addiction than that of the "Facebook or Instagram". The good thing is the more I visit this platform, the more and more interesting people and stuff I meet and come across. My primary reason to come here is - people.

Stories - Chapter 22

I was miserable. I thought it was because of the company, the people, the incentive system – all flawed. I was struggling. I wanted changes. I tried, in many ways. One day, I finally told my boss that I wanted to quit. After that, they changed my job title, content, salary. So I stayed. But still, I was unhappy. I went to career councils. I didn’t know what was wrong. I didn’t know what I was doing and why. I felt that I was wasting my life. I felt like a boiling frog. I was frustrated, desperate. I was lost.

Stories - Chapter 21

I always had a desire to bring something positive to the world, to contribute beyond myself. I had it from very early on. I was always looking for how to do it. I think it was a bit buried when I was a teenager. Then I studied engineering out of practicality. After finishing that, I started working in that industry, but it just felt like something was missing. So I changed jobs. Eventually, I realised that I had to do something completely different because I felt so empty. So I left my job.
