Life lessons.


The School of Life is based in London and they address questions such as why work is often unfulfilling, why relationships can be challenging, why it's ever harder to stay calm and what one could do to try to change to world for the better.
It's founded by Alain De Botton (I have his book 'The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work on my desk at the moment) and his friends. Check out the list of the classes they offer. My favourites: How to make love last, how to have better conversations; how to read; how to spend time alone, and how to fill the God-shaped hole.
I would send my children to The School of Life. I'd probably enrol myself first if I had the chance.
