Education is not about learning, its about learning to use yourself

Transcript: So, this is one thing you must address. Education is not just about learning. All this learning business will be useless and meaningless in the next five to ten years. Once the machine learning comes, everything that you can learn in twenty years, one little gadget will know. Your phone can do ten PhDs a day. That's what is going to happen in the next five to ten years. Because, we have been misunderstanding memory as intelligence. Everything that you can do with your memory, a machine will be able to do better than you. So education is not just about learning. Education is about learning to use yourself. Learning to use your body, your mind, your emotion, everything in a certain way. It's very important that you know how to remain focused on something that doesn't mean a damn thing to you. It's very important. See, people who say that they lack concentration. They fall in love with the neighbourhood, somebody. Oh they fully concentrated. So it's not that they lack concentration. They say I don't have good memory. Show them a suspense thriller movie, every scene they will remember. So their memory is pretty good. Only thing is, they have not learnt to use their mind in such a way, it doesn't matter what, they can apply themselves. If that is not there, you will not make a headway with your life. All the time, world will not be throwing the kind of ball that you want to hit. You understand? When you go and stand at the cricket pitch, they're not going to throw the ball, the kind of ball that you want to hit. They will throw that ball that you cannot hit. Yes or no? Only when you hit that ball, that is difficult to hit, then people will say you're fantastic. Otherwise you'll be playing baby games all your life. I will do only what I like, I'll do only what I like. So why do you decide what you like and what you don't like. Whatever the hell you have to do, do it with full on. Whatever, it doesn't matter. Because this is not about learning, this is about learning to use yourself in the best possible way. Learning to use your body, your mind. Turning this into your tools. That you have the handle in your hands. Otherwise, if you leave it loose, this mind can cause you so much pain, you don't know.
