What's one lesson you find super compelling?

If you could put a megaphone to the ears of the world for just 5 mintues, what's the one lesson you would teach. It doesn't have to be serious, but it can be. It doesn't have to be about math, science, literature, or history, but it can be. It just needs to capture the minds of your audience.

  • Apr 25 2012: Corruption, stealing and lying are ubiquitous features of humanity. No one can ever escape from them. So stop condemning it and looking at it like a weakness, but use it to your strength. Instead of telling our kids to stop lying we should tell them to stop lying to people who care and are cared for by them. Instead of telling our politicians to stop stealing we should tell them to stop stealing from their own constituencies. Stop stealing from your benefactors, start stealing for them.
