Know What Matters
Book Description
Making sense of life – the pursuit of dreams and goals and overcoming ever persistently present hurdles along the way can be a daunting business, especially for young people and those looking after them. Know What Matters is about navigating the business of life. Starting you off where it really matters – Who am I? – it walks, especially, the young person through the sticky issues of responsibility and accountability, inventing one’s life’s purpose, surviving media onslaught, choices in the face of teen sex, making school and learning fun, goal setting and win-win negotiation in relationships. As a youth personal development coach, the author of Know What Matters is familiar with the big challenge of employability. As such the book introduces students to exciting and fulfilling ways of making themselves attractive through active participation in progressive youth clubs, for leadership, entrepreneurship and active citizenship skills and experience while in school. These prepare them for the world of work. The book makes both the young and elders reflect on sensitive life issues that society has, for long, conveniently skirted with terrible social and moral consequences. The author introduces and discusses these issues with a spin that prompts endless ‘aha!’ moments for the reader!
