How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: 8 Ways to Foster Passion-based Learning

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: 8 Ways to Foster Passion-based Learning | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

A study in 1985 “On the Brain of a Scientist: Albert Einstein” found that Einstein’s brain was actually not significantly different from others. As an Organization Development blogger put it:

 

                     ===> what made Einstein different was his mind. <===


His thinking and passion for learning were the basis of his genius. His brain was the same, but his intellect was markedly different. He was often humble about his intellect, and instead said that learning relied on working hard and imagining the impossible. So what made his learning so different? What can we learn from Einstein?

Hi Ana, Thank you. I must say I also prefer the original to the reworked version by WB Yeats at the head of this piece!

So Good they Can't Ignore You - how people really come to love what they do!

   In his new book, 'So Good they Can't Ignore You', Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice. Not only is the cliché flawed -- preexisting passions are rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work -- but it can also be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping.
   After making his case against passion, Newport sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it. This book will change the way we think about our careers, happiness, and the crafting of a remarkable life.
