Do you know Ted?

Confession time. I should be working on my new kit but it's rainy, I am a bit under the weather and well....I got sidetracked. Blog surfing will do that. I love discovering new artists, new ideas and new websites. It's like a modern day treasure hunt. Today, I was on Gary Reef's website and he had linked up 2 very inspirational videos from Ted.com. Ted.com is an amazing website!! They post videos from some of the most amazing and inspirational people in the world. The videos are free to watch. Their tag line...."Ideas worth spreading." Most videos run about 20 mins and range from science to design to business. 

I agree with Gary and think these two are definitely worth a watch.

First up is Elizabeth Gilbert. She is the author of Eat, Pray, Love, She has thought long and hard about some large topics. Her next fascination: genius, and how we ruin it. Here, she muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.





Next is Neil Pasricha. Neil's blog 1000 Awesome Things savors life's simple pleasures, from free refills to clean sheets. In this heartfelt talk, he reveals the 3 secrets (all starting with A) to leading a life that's truly awesome.




I hope you find these talks as inspiring as I did. Be sure to check the site out as there so many other wonderful videos to watch.
