A Model for Perfection in Life Can Be Found Among High-Achievers

Where can we find a model for perfection in life to help our children be all they can be

Where can we find a model for perfection in life to help our children be all they can be?

The Science and Art of Being Perfect is Modeled In Korea

Do you believe Asians are naturally just brighter than other people?  Or is there a reason for their overwhelming success in what they do?

Can we find a Model for Perfection in Life by looking at how they prioritize their lives and learning?

A Typical Korean School Day

The typical South Korean High Schooler has a schedule like this one:

8 AM Wake Up

8:30 AM Full, Balanced Breakfast

9:15 AM Arrive at school and neatly fold and place your belongings in your locker

Students at chalkboard9:30 AM Begin classes focused on

  • 3 languages – native Korean, English and Chinese
  • Math
  • Language Arts
  • Science
  • Creative Writing

7 PM Musical Instrument

10 PM Homework in 3 languages

12 PM Bedtime

5 days a week….

On Saturdays, school ends at 4 PM with early dismissal.  Sundays are days off.

A model for perfection in life includes year-round schoolingYear-Round School

Nope, no summer vacations in Korea!

The student will have studied 30 textbooks in 3 languages by the end of the school year.

Is This A Model for Perfection in Life That is Viable?

The schedule I describe here is not for a super-achiever aiming for a top Ivy League College…this is for a Kindergartner in Korea!

What about creative playtime?  Is that just an excuse for a life of ease?

In truth about 95% of mankind will opt for the easy way out on things…

We want our vacations.  We want our leisure time.

How many are willing to put in the dedication to get to top achievement?

For a professional athelete, it can be hours and hours of practice and repetition.

For a top musician, many many hours of hard work are also needed.

For top-achievers in business, the same truth holds.

It takes work.  It takes persistence.

creative thinkingIs There a Balance We Can Find?

Is 50-60 hours a week necessary?  Including preparation time, and homework, up to 100 hours each week, year-round…

American children spend about half that…if children spent more time with challenging learning opportunities early in life, could a Model for Perfection in life be found that will help American children have higher rates of success?

How much of that can happen with parental involvement, even if your school system doesn't offer options like these?

Having a Maker-Space at home can help children explore and learn as a part of their creative playtime.

There are online courses with strong teacher guidance that can add to your School's offerings?

Science demonstrates that a child's brain in the kindergarten years is the perfect time to expose them to creative thinking and languages…English Language Arts, Art, and Creative Writing and Science exploration are perfect vehicles to help them play and learn.  It is also the perfect time to help their brains expand with willpower and discipline functions.  Music and math help with that.

What kind of life and future do you want for your kids?  Is there something you can learn by looking at a model for perfection in life like the Koreans demonstrate to us?
