12 Things School Should Have Taught You - YouTube Section 1: The Corrupt Factory School System The school system fails to teach important life skills. It focuses on creating obedient workers. The system is designed to create worker ants on the factory line. Children are conditioned to follow orders and lack creativity. Schools prioritize national exams over the creativity and future prosperity of students. Section 2: The Influence of the Mega Wealthy The school system was designed by the mega wealthy during the Industrial Age. John D Rockefeller, a wealthy oil baron, donated a large sum of money to the school board to create obedient workers. Children were conditioned to follow orders from a young age, similar to factory workers. The system still prioritizes creating rule-following employees over nurturing creativity. Westernized schools focus more on national exam rankings than on the well-being and creativity of students. Section 3: Lack of Education on Health and Nutrition Schools fail to teach important information about health and nutrition. There is no class that helps students understand nutrition labels and how to count calories and macros. Parents often lack the knowledge to provide this information due to biased studies and misinformation from food industries. The consequences of unhealthy diets include obesity and cardiovascular disease. Students need to learn about calories in, calories out, macronutrients, micronutrients, and how to read nutritional labels. 12 Things School Should Have Taught You - YouTube Section 4: Lack of Education on Relationships Schools do not teach students how to have healthy relationships. Bad relationships can lead to moodiness and depression, while healthy relationships can bring hope and optimism. The Harvard study shows a direct link between the closeness of relationships and longevity of life. If relationships in your life aren't working, try improving communication, setting boundaries, and seeking professional help. Having strong relationships can help individuals achieve their goals and reach their full potential. Section 1: Dealing with Emotions and Maintaining Healthy Relationships Practice unconditional love to allow others to show their true emotions and avoid defensiveness. Display courage and vulnerability to address the true heart of problems in relationships. Use the law of positive intent to ask questions before getting angry and understand others' perspectives. Learn about managing relationships from Tony Robbins' YouTube videos. Good relationships in business can lead to success and opportunities. Section 2: Understanding Nutrition and Breathing Techniques Breathing through the mouth can lead to dental and facial issues, while breathing through the nose has health benefits. James Nester's book "Breathe" provides insights on proper breathing techniques. Slowing down breath and practicing ancient techniques like pranayama can improve health. Not getting enough sleep can lead to health issues, unproductivity, and even death. Individual sleep needs vary, and it's important to find what works best for you. Section 3: Tips for Better Sleep Establish a consistent bedtime and wake-up time. Avoid using devices before bed and dim lights in the evening. Consider using a white noise machine or fan for better sleep. Avoid alcohol and refined sugars close to bedtime. Track sleep quality using devices like the Aura Ring. Section 4: Considering Alternatives to College Education College education often leads to significant debt. Peter Thiel's Thiel Fellowship offers an alternative to college, investing in talented students and their startups. Successful founders like Vitalik Buterin and Dylan Field have benefited from the Thiel Fellowship. Question the value of traditional education and explore alternative paths. Consider the long-term financial implications of college debt. Section 1: Lack of Creativity and Entrepreneurship The education system focuses on learning what has already been done, rather than encouraging students to start something new. Colleges are not effective in teaching creativity and entrepreneurship. Going into the industry you love and learning on the job is often a better option than going to university. Only go to university if you want to pursue a career in fields like medicine. The education system was not designed to inspire students to create new businesses. Section 2: Lack of Career Preparation Schools do not teach students how to succeed in a job. Skills like resume writing, self-confidence, communication, leadership, and career progression are not taught in schools. Writing a killer resume and developing self-confidence are important for job success. Building communication and leadership skills can be done through reading books about successful leaders. Understanding and setting expectations, as well as discussing career progression with managers, are crucial for career success. Section 3: Lack of Financial Education The banking system encourages people to take on debt. Credit cards can be valuable for earning rewards points, but only if the debt is paid off immediately. Credit card companies use tricks to accrue interest on unpaid balances. Financial education about renting, buying a home, and managing finances is not taught in schools. It is recommended to start with renting when young and uncertain about income and housing preferences. Section 4: Lack of Life Skills Schools do not teach important life skills like emotional intelligence, maintaining healthy relationships, and understanding nutrition. Parents are expected to teach these life skills, but not all parents are equipped to do so. Understanding rental applications and buying a home are important life skills not taught in schools. It is important to consider factors like income stability and personal preferences when deciding whether to rent or buy a home. Life circumstances can change, so renting initially allows for flexibility and exploration of housing preferences. Section 1: Rental Application A rental application is like a resume that you fill out to increase your chances of being chosen by a homeowner. Fill out everything on the application accurately and provide all requested information. Include a lot of financial information to show that you can make rental payments. Use high-quality references from credible sources to demonstrate trustworthiness. If you want to buy a home instead of renting, research the market and understand the process. Section 2: Buying a Home Research how much money you can borrow from a bank before looking at properties. Shop around for the best mortgage deal and don't just stick with your current bank. Ensure that your loan repayment is no more than 30% of your current income. Create a list of non-negotiables and nice-to-haves for your dream home. Visit the house, talk to neighbors, and make sure you're happy living there. Section 3: Compound Interest Compound interest is a powerful tool for growing wealth over time. Investing early and consistently can lead to significant returns due to compound interest. Starting to invest in your 20s can result in a much larger retirement fund compared to starting in your 40s. Governments encourage saving for retirement through programs like superannuation or 401k. Passive investing, such as investing in low-fee index funds, can help take advantage of compound interest. Section 4: Tax Education Tax education is not taught in schools, leading to many people losing out on potential tax returns. There are various tax deductions that individuals can claim, such as working from home expenses, textbooks, and charitable donations. Consulting with an accountant can help maximize tax returns and uncover potential deductions. Getting the whole family involved in tax planning can lead to additional benefits. Importance of Teaching Life Skills in School The school system fails to teach important life skills such as dealing with emotions, maintaining healthy relationships, and understanding nutrition. The focus of the school system is on creating obedient workers rather than teaching practical life skills. Students are not taught how to manage their mental health, which can lead to issues such as depression and suicide. Students are taught what to think, not how to think, and are always looking for answers outside of themselves. There is a lack of understanding about how the mind works and what it needs to function in a balanced way. Researching and learning about one's own mental health is often neglected in favor of spending time on social media platforms.
