In the 20th century, the formula for professional and personal success was understood to be fairly straightforward. Work hard, get good grades, go to the best college you can, get a good job, get married, etc. This formula was premised on the notion that success came first and happiness came next.
But there is only one problem with this approach. It’s wrong.
Over the past two decades, a diverse set of economists, psychologists, educators and neuroscientists have been assembling a mounting body of scientific evidence on how children actually develop and grow into happy, flourishing adults. Grounded in the latest brain science, a picture is slowly emerging of the skills and traits that children need to succeed that turns the old formula on its head; a picture that looks a lot like the one Dr. Maria Montessori figured out over 100 years ago.
