After Skool by Alan Watts
The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions
Prepared by Lucia Valente February 2021
I just came across Alan Watts, an author and YouTube contributor His video about Good Intentions is of interest to me, considering that I have a non-profit and have good intentions towards what we do
Watts outlines many of the unintended consequences of good deeds and good intentions.

I agree totally; self-development and ongoing personal improvement is vital to shaping a life that demonstrates good deeds and good intentions. However, surely, when we go on a journey of self-development, we realize that the world is larger than our own needs. Surely the follow through of self-development is consideration and contributions to others? Lots to think about…….
