Anthony Seldon reveals the five most important things he has
learned in his life. As the head of Wellington College, he threw
out GCSEs and established his own curriculum - which includes

1. Stop worrying
Learning that nothing in life ultimately matters, and that we
have bravely to face up to whatever life throws us, over which we
have no control. I was brought up by a wonderful but fear-filled
mother who made us all full of apprehension about some impending
disaster. I spent my adolescence, 20s and 30s full of anxiety about
terrible things happening to me, my wife and our children - even to
our dog, help us!
In my late 40s, I began to understand that everything in life is
as it should be, and that worry can be a terribly self-centred and
limited way of thinking. Luckily I married, Joanna, who is a
worry-free zone, but even with her help, it took me many years to
begin to free myself. Worry is a denial of trust, about which I
wrote a book last year. As Camilla Carr and Jonathan James write at
