Find The Others, Why You Need a Tribe

Franklin & Einstein had something in common. Both had clubs where they could refine their ideas.

Franklin had his Junto.

Einstein had the Olympic Academy.

Franklin’s Junto was a place for he and his friends to debate, present ideas, and discuss local politics.

Einstein had the “Olympic Academy”, a name he and his friends chose in jest, where they met to discuss science, mathematics, and philosophy.

These were, dare I say, “safe spaces” where they could sharpen ideas well before they were ready for public consumption.

Their example underscores that lifelong learning across disciplines can be enhanced when done with a group.
