Hate reading? Go straight to tips4

FROM THE MOMENT WE STEP INTO THIS WORLD, something inside of us knows that we were born to create. That’s why we like to play so much as children, creating wonderful worlds with our imaginations.

Then we start school, and at first, it feels like a big play pen with lots of friends and unlimited fun. We learn new things fast, our imaginations soar, we create extraordinary things, and everybody thinks we’re amazing for our age.

But when the teen years roll in, life changes abruptly. We’re free to play maybe a couple of hours a day, and for the rest of our waking moments, it’s: Pay attention in school! Study! Do your homework!
