What is this place?

Hello. Welcome to my Blog. These are the things that I wish I had been taught at school.

My name is Greg. I am a teacher and adult educator with over 18 years of experience designing and developing training courses.

Knowing what you know now, what do you wish they had taught you at school?

  • How can I make more money?
  • How do I deal with loneliness? Stress? Anxiety?
  • How can I get people to listen to my opinions and ideas?
  • How do I handle difficult situations both as a kid and as an adult in the workplace?
  • How can I be more confident? Braver? Wiser? Happier?

This is the place where I try to work out how to do those things, and to reflect on how those things could be taught in schools and in workplaces.

As I write this I have a four year old son who is just starting formal preschool and I think a lot about how his schooling and experiences will influence and develop him as he grows up. I think a lot about what skills he really needs in the future he’s growing up into and especially how he can develop and master those skills to be the kind of person who influences the world around him for the better.

So, this blog is about ideas, applications, skills and practical things that spread over all parts of life, with a special emphasis on learning, growing, experiencing and applying practical solutions.

This is a journey for me. I would like it to be a place of community as well, of sharing, ideas, knowledge and perspectives. A place of finding out and discovery, and of knowing that others have been where you are, and may have a piece of the puzzle that you need.

I hope you will stay and join me and if you do then let’s start then with the comments down below: What do you wish they’d taught you at school?
