Passion Party #169 - The Three Rs

We grew up in a world
where school was based on the three Rs:
Reading, 'riting, and 'rithmatic.
But I would suggest
that school spends way too much time teaching "facts" and how to pass tests
instead of teaching how to live a purposeful and successful life.
In high school they will teach you calculus, but not how to balance a checkbook.
Our brains are full of information, but not so full of knowledge.

Today I will practice
the three Rs of life:
*Respect for self
*Respect for others
*Responsibility in all my actions

Everything else will follow from that.
