21st Century Education: Life Lessons Learned Out Of School - Articles Surfing
The rationale behind the education system today has not changed much in the last 50 or so years. Schools are meant to be the staging ground from which our young ones will learn their life lessons. They are supposed to prepare our children for the lives they will lead once they graduate and enter the real world.
When we speak of the kind of preparation that schools are giving our children for the lives they think they will lead once they get out of them, it only means one thing. They are molded into believing that they should get grades that are good enough to get them into college, and once they are in college, they are supposed to get a degree that will lead them to good jobs. After they have landed the job that suits their educational background, skills and abilities, they are then expected to work on that job until they reach retirement age, which is pegged at 65. Once they reach 65, then they can do whatever they want with their time.
It sounds dreary, does it not? One studies to get a good job, and one works a job to have a good life. There is more to life than just working a job and that is something that 21st century education will teach each and every one of us.
It is a fact of life that we all need money to survive. But money does not grow on trees; we earn it through a job. That is just about addressing basic needs, though. The finer things in life cost more money, and if we want those, we have to scramble to get a good, high-paying job and either do our utmost to keep this job or get promoted to one that pays more.
A life lived in this way is so frustrating and stressful, it is almost pointless. It is the surest way of missing out on the beautiful journey that our lives are meant to be. But in 21st century education, we get to learn that we can live our lives out of the corporate rat race and savor our lives the way it was meant to be savored.
Money is necessary to living, but earning it is not supposed to be the goal of our lives. In a 21st century education, we find ways to make the money that we need to live on now so we do not have to worry about it later. This kind of money is called passive income.
Earning Passive Income is the Fruit of 21st Century Education
What is passive income? Simply put, passive income is a type of earnings where the work is done only once, but in such a way that its yields will continue to grow over time and will be enjoyed by the person who did the work for the rest of his or her life.
It sounds appealing, does it not? To be able to do work only once and generate earnings that will allow us to enjoy the rest of our lives. This is what passive income is all about, and passive income is the fruit that learning 21st century education will give us. Enroll now and start living your life the way you want it.
