?!X: What’s the Future You Choose?

GS: I choose a future where we choose not to be ignorant of our past, a future where we are being present and more aware of our own unique identity.  A future where we embrace our differences and choose to enjoy and learn from them. A future where more and more people doing what they love and loving what they do.

?!X: What’s a ‘think’ to create this future?

GS: To create this future I would recommend the reading of the classics like the ‘Syntopicon: An Index to The Great Ideas‘ a cannon of the western world great thinkers, that will take you a while 🙂
For more easy reading than ‘Man Search for Meaning’ by Viktor Frenkel is a must read I would recommend for everyone.  ‘Guns, germs and steel’ by Jared Diamond will give you an interesting view on evolution. ‘Wind, Sand and Stars’ by Antoine de Saint – Exupery, magical.
A film I would recommend to watch is ‘1 Giant Leap’ by Jamie Catto a colorful musical journey that explore the beauty and diversity of human identity.

?!X: What’s an ‘act’ to create the future you choose

GS: The act of listening to the current needs of our society and our communities.  To create a new model in private education that will lead and pioneer the modern education. Where students are intrigue to learn about their identity and will enrich them with empowering insights to make better choices for their lives. I am committed to create this future through The School of Leadership + Creativity.

?!X: What’s a ‘vote’ to create the future you choose?

GS: My pledge is that we will choose to dedicate our life to the learning experience, choose not take anything for granted and come up with new bold powerful questions about everything and anything.

?!X: Future Soundtrack – What song would you take with you into the future? 

GS: Beautiful World – Coldplay
