Element Connection

“For most of us the problem isn’t that we aim too high and fail - it’s just the opposite - we aim too low and succeed.” - Ken Robinson, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything Respond to this quote by describing a moment during the project when you were challenged or struggled and had to really work hard to achieve your goal.



  • I was challenged when ISIS attacked Paris because it affected Syria (our ally)
  • It was hard to do because no one wanted to help out Syria because that is where ISIS is from

Element Connection

“To be creative you actually have to do something.” - Sir Ken Robinson, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything. Respond to this quote by describing a moment during the project when you either experienced creativity, the “zone” or recognized it in someone else.


Something that I found creative was that Syria had some information that made Russia look bad and they black mailed us to sign with them. If we didn’t sign with them they would show the other countries the information they had about Russia. We evidently didn’t want the other countries to be against us so we signed with Syria and got their vote for our resolution statement.
