Do Yourself a Favour

If you really want to do yourself a favour, and you don’t quite know what to do, you can start by listening to a TED talk.

It doesn’t matter what the subject matter is or who you are, you are bound to come away from the experience feeling different and I say this, not as a person who uses this resource religiously, but as a shameless knowledge mercenary who dips in sporadically when the fancy takes him.

The premise of TED is simple but marvellously effective: brief, captivating and stimulating talks about “ideas worth spreading”, given by “remarkable people”. Bravo. It’s like college without the tedium – very rarely will you find a protracted hour or two-hour long lecture about a topic you deem to be boring.

TED talks will enlighten and inspire you. You will be better off having indulged and who knows, something may ignite a passion spark inside of you and “God knows” (to steal a phrase), we all want to be passionate about something. So, do yourself a favour.

I recently watched one by Dan Gilbert which can be found by clicking HERE.
