11 Ted Talks That Inspire Change

11 Ted Talks That Inspire Change jillconyers.com #motivation #inspiration #TEDTalks @jillconyers

It’s wonderful to see everyone. I’m so excited about getting together today!

I know the topic is podcasts, but I’ve taken it on a bit of a different, but closely related, course. I think you’ll like where I’m going with this.

The last time I listened to a podcast was when I was ultra training and that’s been a while. So, instead, I give you TED Talks.

Seriously amazing thoughts, ideas and inspiration in 18 minutes or less.

After our chat about inspiring women I’ve been thinking. What or who else has inspired me to make a change or at the very least, has made me think.

There’s a good chance you’re familiar with TED Talks.

TED and I get together often. When I’m cooking, working out on the treadmill or elliptical or simply sitting and absorbing the information shared.

With a slogan of ideas worth spreading, TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek and share a deeper understanding of the world.

TED believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.

TED.com, is a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls.

My introduction to Ted Talks, and most inspiring to me personally, was Brene Brown, author of The Gifts of Imperfection, I Thought It Was Just Me and Daring Greatly.

Steve Jobs: How To Live Before You Die

Quote

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.

You’ve got to seize serendipity. A random thing that might seem small,  you’ve got to grab it and follow it for a while.

Christopher McDougall – Were We Born To Run?

I received the best advice for running I ever heard. You’re not going to win so just relax. If it feels like work you’re running too hard.
