How can I become a better student? How can I truly learn about myself and my potential, so that I might make a more substantial contribution to life on this planet?

In Chaim Potok’s The Chosen, Reuven Malter’s is instructed with the two universal obligations: "To acquire a teacher and to choose a friend." During the past years, I’ve "acquired" teachers: Mary Kall, Steve Anderson, Danny Maseng, and A.J. Stinnett. They’ve taught me plenty.

But now I face the assignment I’ve given my MBA students (studying creativity at OSU): know thyself, and develop a curriculum for personal creative development. That’s my assignment. Any suggestions?

Do you have a curriculum for your own personal creative development? Have you acquired a teacher? Have you chosen a friend?
