He sailed around the world, twice; the second voyage with his young family in tow. And in spite of starting a crabbing business in his teens and several other ventures throughout his adulthood, his expeditions are where Caspar Craven learned, along with his family, some of the most vital lessons in life. Perhaps most importantly? How to stay alive. The most important skill they learned on the high seas through their many adventures is emotional resilience. Hear how they cultivated that resilience and how you can too on this episode of Spartan Up.
Lessons: 1. Teach resilience by modeling resilience. 2. Integrative learning through following a passion through all its aspects (math, science, humanities, etc.) can be a more effective teaching tool than learning each discipline in isolation and without context. 3. Talk about what you want to do all the time until it becomes vivid and real to you, then figure out how to do it.
Spartan Up! is a weekly audio/video podcast; a Spartan Race for the mind. The show focuses on the Spartan mindset and how we define and achieve success in all walks of life.
