Have you ever discovered how to do something - and wished you'd known about it before? We hope so- that's why psychologists say learning is an even more important motivation than sex to joyful adult people. Consider this recommendation for spending 3 minutes of your time
3 MINUTE EXERCISE
If many people are meeting each other for the first time- including a new class at school - we recommend spending the first 3 minutes: ask people to stand up in groups of three- each person spends 60 seconds on the greatest life changing moment in her life to date and what she started doing differently because of it.
Q&A- 1) why's this smart way spending 3 minutes introducing people? 2) how to action debrief everyone after first 3 minutes? 3) what other tools exist for innovating simultaneous communications-doing among masses of people? 4) Does our species' future generation depend on experiencing such culturally simple and trustworthy ways to spend time communicating?
Let's discuss q4 first:
You may have heard that in 2015 all our national leaders at the United Nations listed 17 SDG: Sustainability Development Goals- challenges to organise our lives at work and play around if we want out children to have a future.
(By the way most peoples' minds cant organise round doing 17 tasks at the same time - so if there was one goal that connected all the others of being human: -
true or false- the world you and I and every human being can most celebrate is one where each next girl or boy born has a good chance at living a happy free and productive life. (This is sometimes called goal 1 end poverty -it is linked to other basic goals 2 end people dying of hunger, 3 end people dying of any disease parents/communities could prevent or cure if education networks has shared information openly ...) See future shocking footnote for more
If every time you met a large group of strangers, the first 3 minutes was spent on the above exercise then you would get an idea of the community you were about to spend more time with as well as some particular people you most wanted to "friend" ie network with further, or the opposite! Of course there are times - eg when you are a child - that you may not be free to exercise this freedom of speech/action. Elders (eg parents) may have chosen this for you. Assuming you are connected to elders who love you, then their values should be your safety, physical and mental health and whats smart for your being to find your place in the world. Places and nations depend on getting this right as the sustainability goals themselves offer living testimony to. Healthy youthful societies generate economic growth not vice versa. If professions including judges do not agree this as their hippocratic hypothesis for being , then darkness descends, light may not return.
Its a measure that something has gone wrong with places; media and measurements if young people are voicing concerns - eg greta on climate - and old people are not showing they are listening by changing how everyone spends their time - especially teachers and students and your home community spends your time tomorrow and tomorrow as the Bard memorilaised
We are not saying all of this is easy. Nor are other things we spend the first 11,14 or 18 years of life on depending how long your place designs schools around. But tools like the 3 minute exercise help experiencing what matters to people through life. How does one search for networks who link into methods like these. We recommend starting with (alumni of ) Harrison Owen.

Something accidentally weird happened when man started to develop machine engineering in 1760 - Glasgow University James Watt. At that time and for the next 100 years England representing less than half a per cent of peoples on earth was the most superpowerful hub of trade and knowhow in the world. Their higher education colleges, oxbridge, were extremely influential. They determined what children who spoke the english language spent their time being examined on. For some reason -SEE THIS REFERENCE from diary of World Record Job Creator Adam Smith - the empire's higher education system did not make goal 1 ending poverty its overarching "values" purpose. In fact, we are not sure that a university system began to be designed around Goal 1's purpose until 2001 when Fazle Abed decided that 30 years of empowering the worlds poorest women to end poverty was a worthy alumni network for a humanly innovative 21st c university
