What Matters Now...

We don't know if you've seen it yet. But here's a lovely e-book. There are so many things about it: creativity at its best, collection of the best of short pieces from different people and hey people, it's free. Enjoy some quotes from the book here:

"Art can’t happen without someone who seeks to make a difference. This is your art, it’s what you do. You touch people or projects and change them for the better." Seth Godin

"Until Fear is gone, (and realize he may never completely leave) make the decision to be courageous. The world needs your story in order to be complete.''Anne Jackson

"Dignity is more important than wealth. It’s going to be a long, long time before we can make everyone on earth wealthy, but we can help people find dignity this year (right now if we choose to)"Jacqueline Novogratz

"If not excellence, what?" Tom Peters

"Education has a ripple effect. One drop can initiate a cascade of possibility, each concentric circle gaining in size and traveling further. If you get education right, you get many things right: escape from poverty, better family health, and improved status of women. Educate a girl, and you educate her children and generations to follow" John Wood

"Storytelling is powerful. It helps us understand, make choices and can inspire us."Alisa Miller

Here's the link to What Matters Now.


  1. Seems like this was a pretty huge project.How were the contributors selected?

  2. We can easily judge the mastery and comprehension of material when an average student is told to find example essays at for his university each year. Human activities in the field of scientific research are growing each year as well as any other process in technology or schooling. Youth feel responsibility for the knowledge they gain withing their years of studying.
