Career Advice to Save the Planet

What if we all woke up everyday looking forward, full of ideas and energized because we had found our purpose in life?

Well, English Teacher Online thinks this career advice to save the planet can help you do just that –to have a happy, successful and prosperous life too.

How Should I Choose My Career?

Start with your passion, what you love to do and are good at.

It needs to be your vocation, what the world needs and you can be paid for.

Don’t just settle for a profession, what you are good at and could get paid to do.

Find your mission, what the world needs and that you love.

Your ‘Ikigai’ is your purpose in life, the point where your passion, mission, vocation and profession converge – and it’s really important that you find it.

Why Is Money Not So Important?

Most of the problems in this world come from the fact that people aren’t happy. They are forced to do things just for money and not for the greater good of saving the planet.

Unhappy or uncaring people in power can easily make bad or corrupt decisions because they are not following their true path, they never found their Ikigai.

Money isn’t even real, it’s just a trust mechanism that we use to exchange time, goods and services.

In an automated world – culture, art and music become a currency that enriches society. Nobody should feel they need to do a job just because someone says that everyone needs to work.

Before the 21st century, housewives were exploited because they felt obliged to work hard without any monetary reimbursement – they did it for love and an understanding that if the chores weren’t done, the house could easily fall into ruin.

Gender equality is helping, as men and women start to share household chores but we need to see this reflected across society, not least in the positions that affect our planet most.

Nobody can predict the future – most of us can’t even predict what will happen next week! The only thing we should really be interested in is happiness in the workplace.

How Will We Save Humankind?

The universe is so beautiful that it deserves to be appreciated and enjoyed by sentient beings such as us. At this moment our species is very vulnerable to a meteor strike or other natural disaster.

We can save our civilization in two ways:

  • Escape the planet and colonize other areas of space.
  • Protect Earth’s environment so that it’s able to support human life in a meaningful way.
Double our Chances of Survival

This is not an either or scenario. We can choose to work for both outcomes, to have a life supporting Earth and human colonies beyond our mother planet. The important point is that these two goals should not conflict with one another.

So, what is your Ikigai? What is your purpose in life? Your passion, mission, vocation or profession? What career path will you choose? There are so many possibilities – good luck choosing well.

My Long Summer Holiday 2018

Was it the 3-D Interactive Art Gallery, Underwater World, or Siam Frost Park?

Maybe it was lazy days spent around the pool, getting KFC delivered or going out to dinner?

Taking a break from English Teacher Online and spending time with my family in Pattaya was certainly the highlight of my long summer holiday this year.

My mum, dad, sister and nephew had flown over to Thailand for 2 weeks. We’d never rented a villa before, but this one had 3 bedrooms and a private swimming pool. It was all ours for 11 glorious days!

As we settled into our new holiday home, I quickly jumped on the internet and checked out all the tourist attractions in the famous seaside town of Pattaya.

The first thing that caught my eye was Art in Paradise, a 3-D interactive gallery, and the family quickly agreed that it should be our first day out.

As we walked around, inside the gallery, we were amazed at all the beautiful pictures and carefully designed camera points to help us take fantastic photographs.

Shots with T-rex, a magic carpet ride, dancing Gangnam style and holding Thors hammer, are just a few examples of the incredible memories that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.

A few days later we went to Underwater World which boasts a 100 meter long tunnel, the longest in Southeast Asia. My nephew, Josh, fed the golden carp with a baby’s milk bottle at the entrance to the aquarium. He said that it felt weird but was very good fun too!

Inside the tunnel, it seemed as if the fish were following us around as we walked slowly through their incredible habitat. Some of the fish were well camouflaged and very difficult to see. Others were enormous and impossible to miss. My favourite was the manta ray, a flat fish which at one point swam right over my head. Incredible!

For our 8th wedding anniversary, the family went to Frost Magical Ice of Siam. We had to wrap up warm before going inside but it was still really cold. They used lots and lots of industrial sized air-con units to keep the room at freezing temperatures.

As we walked around, Josh spotted an ice slide so we carefully walked up the icy steps.  I sat down at the top of the slide and the ice felt so hard and very cold. I pushed myself off and followed Josh down the slide. I turned around to see Pom sliding down too. We all laughed so much!

Next we went to the ice bar and ordered our free drinks. Fanta arrived in thick solid ice glasses that felt as cold as outer space! My wife had never been to a place so cold but said that it was a really fun and romantic way to spend 30 minutes of our 8th wedding anniversary. That’s all the time we could stand as our noses and toes started to freeze and go numb!

Pattaya had such a variety of food and things to do. One evening we found a restaurant that served traditional English roast dinners which my mum, sister and I ordered. Josh had a pizza and my wife and father ate spicy Thai food.

All good things come to an end and soon it was time for my family to go back to England. We waved good-bye at the airport and promised to do it all again next year!

What did you do this long summer holiday?

XPCoin May 2018 Update

This week English Teacher Online got an exclusive XPCoin May 2018 update and off-road map from DigiWarFare, the XPCoin developer and executive responsible for writing computer code that allows me to earn XPCoins playing Rust!

He explained that XPCoin was rebranded last year and is making great strides forward without the usual cash boost an ICO brings. Despite this major financial hurdle, XPCoin has obtained investment from within the gaming community. It has more than 20 VPS (Virtual Private Servers), and a vast staff dedicated in their quest to monetize computer gaming and integrate it into the mainstream 21st century economy.

 

Integration was the theme of our interview as Digi explained the 3 step process needed to get independent game developers onboard using XPCoin. We also discussed the role of XPCoin investors versus consumers, and a no holds barred appraisal of those who would disrupt his organization in their pursuit of a quick buck.

Digi has logged over 2000 hours playing Rust and I could tell that it has a special place in his game playing heart. Despite it’s ruthless and salty reputation (built up over many years in Beta), Rust has so much potential. As a social experiment, Rust gives psychologists ongoing insights into role playing minds that you just don’t get from other games.

It’s no surprise then that Digi made Rust a top priority when it came to paying gamers for their time. That’s why I was one of the first to sign up to ladder.xpcoin.io and start earning XPCoins. As promised, here is a screenshot showing latest payments into my XPCoin Wallet.

XPCoin Ladder Payment

Digi also explained how Rust events (that run around the clock) are designed to help the community grow. Economy points are paid to event winners and losers alike, so there’s even more incentive to improve your combat skills in game.

The XPCoin Rust server only has 200 slots and Digi is keen to “stress test” having that many players all earning XPCoins at the same time – I don’t have a crystal ball but I do prophesize that this server will be full very soon!

Digi is now off to monetize 7 days to Die, but he will still be tracking Rust through his admin panel and listening closely to Gabriel in the XPCoin Rust admin team.

 

It certainly is an exciting time to be part of the XPCoin Crypto-Gaming space and I am very grateful to DigiWarFare for sharing his vision for May, 2018 and beyond exclusively with English Teacher Online. Please comment, like, share, follow or subscribe to show your support.

Sign up here to earn money playing computer games such as Rust, 7 Days to Die or Minecraft.

XP Coin Rust Server

English Teacher Online is testing XP Coin Rust Server sponsored by XP (Experience Points) Coin, the crypto-currency for gamers.

New methods of trust, like XP Coin and Bitcoin, are revolutionizing the way we think about money. XP Coin uses computer code to maintain a decentralized global ledger that’s trusted by the computer games industry.

XP Coin has a massive community and sponsor E-Sport Events like the Chennai Esports Launch plus multiple community cup tournaments for CS:Go, Dota 2 and Overwatch.

Building The XP Community On Rust

There are lots of fun events planned for the XP Coin Rust Server, including the Combat Arena, space for 200 players on a large map with active admin.

Type “XP Coin” into you Rust server search to find us and come join in the fun today.

Free English Lessons Playing Rust

We’ve been testing this server as a possible English language learning platform, a strategy to help young adults become engaged in English.

Teachers guide their students through the beautiful yet brutal world of Rust, building, farming and guarding their bases from the wild savages that roam the lands.

Lessons are much more learner-centered because Rust is an interactive classroom where students can role play and become fluent in English.

We also plan to train an elite international team of students to play as ETO, English Teacher Online.

Communicative Language Learning (CLL)

The communicative approach is based on ideas that learning language successfully comes through having to communicate real meaning. When learners are involved in authentic communication, their natural strategies for language acquisition are used, which allows them to absorb and use the language more effectively.

Example of CLL 
Asking learners to identify and find items in game is an example of the communicative approach, as it involves meaningful communication.

What Equipment Do Students Need?

You are required to have a microphone to communicate with the teacher in game using Discord.

You also need a PC with 8GB Ram, 8GB free disk space, and a license of the Rust game.
