Ken Robinson's groundbreaking New York Times bestseller, The Element, introduced readers to a new concept of self-fulfillment and has inspired readers around the world. When people find their Element, they tune in to their highest levels, and live their best lives. Now, in his new book, Robinson answers the fundamental question: How do I find my Element?
With his signature wry wit, Robinson offers a series of practical exercises to help you discover your own talents and passions. Along the way, he tells the stories of many "ordinary" people in all walks of life who have overcome obstacles of every sort to find their Element. And he explores fundamental principles and vital questions to help you find yours: What are you good at? What do you love? What makes you happy? Where are you now? Your answers to these and many others will provide you with invaluable keys to discovering your Element.
As concerns about the economy, education, and the environment continue to grow, the need for individuals to find their own Element has never been greater. No matter how old you are, where you are, or what you do now, if you're searching for your Element, this book is for you. It will launch you on the most important quest you've ever undertaken: the quest to discover your true self and the life you really want to lead.
One of several books I must read for a project. Terrible.
Although a light read, this book was basically boring. There were far too many anecdotal stories of individuals finding their element (a.k.a passion) which soon made the book repetitive and tiresome. I am not a fan of self-help books at the best of time and this one certainly didn't endear me to the genre. In fact, the exercises suggested throughout "Finding Your Element" terrified me! Mind maps, vision boards, etc. . . . Argh!!!!
Finding your element. How to discover your talents and passions and transform your life is a self-help book to help people find happiness by breaking out of constraints and liberating one-self by finding out what one's real aptitude and ability are. The book is remarkably simple, and straight-forward, a series of open doors. If there are any people who do not see the obvious, the merit of the book is that it offers guidance in finding the goal and many practical exercises to do so.

Among the questions that this new book answers are: � How do I find out what my talents and passions are? � What if I love something I'm not good at? � What if I'm good at something I don't love? � What if I can't make a living from my Element? � How do I do help my children find their Element? Finding Your Element comes at a critical time, as concerns about the economy, education, and the environment continue to grow.
