TEDx Talks

Posted on 20. Sep, 2014 by Jeff Lambert in Thought Provoking

Got my weekly YouTube email today that had a few intriguing links.  Got sucked in by the first TEDx video I watched.  But I now know that Snails are related to Doors and Elephants lift 1 Ton weights.  And I remember this and more a few hours after watching  “How to become a memory master”.

Then I decided to learn something from a remarkable 17 year old.  He is wise beyond his years and seems to have been this way for several years, if not longer.  Truly inspirational talk on his philosophy for a happy life.

I wrapped it up with a talk on determining your Life’s Purpose in 5 minutes.  It actually was quite a concept and one I will think about more in the coming days.

I try not to feel guilty when I get pulled into these talks as many of the ones I’ve watched have left me thinking about things that are sometimes profound and sometimes just make your mind wander and ponder.

I did stop after these but think I’ll try and find a 15-30 minute block of time in my day to watch one or two of these talks and see where they lead me. Perhaps they will result in my finding a new hobby, a new area of interest, a new way of  interacting with others or simply an ice breaker topic the next time I’m meeting someone for the first time.

I Googled to see if there was a good utility or site where others have reviewed and recommended talks but didn’t find much in the short time that I searched. This would be really helpful as these talks seem limitless. Here are three lists I found and will probably look through when I find a slow time in the coming days.
