TED Talks: “Ideas Worth Spreading”
I’m sure most of you guys have heard of TED Talks. If you haven’t, you’ve been missing out on some good stuff. I’m an absolute fan of TED and have no idea how many of their videos have I seen over the last couple of years and how many there are in my bookmark folder waiting for me to watch. I sometimes find myself watching them for hours and hours, without even realizing it. TED is my go to source of motivation and inspiration when I feel like I might use some (or even when I don't)
According to ted.com, this is what TED is all about:
" TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. "
All of these videos are absolutely amazing and have inspired me so much over the time. They’re philosophical, motivational, inspirational and feel extremely refreshing each time I watch them. I sometimes just watch the same videos over and over again, simply because they’re just so good. They’re especially helpful when I feel stuck with something. Maybe a project I’m working on, or just life in general.
You can watch them on their official web site (here, you can browse videos by topics) or their official YouTube channel.
Careful though, their videos are addicting!
