How’s it going?
We are continuing with the #SeriesOf5s for the month of May and so far, we are going strong. Trust me, having a theme makes blogging wayyyy easier. So far, we have looked at 5 Expensive Things and their #Alaroro counterparts and 5 recommendations to help your focus at work and the previous post in honour of Mothers everywhere, 5 ways to show your Mama love this season.
Well, it is a Monday and everyone who is doing Monday definitely needs #MondayMotivation – I will be sharing my top 5 TED Talks that have provided inspiration for me in my life journey. Before we dive in, who is TED and what doess TED talk about = Well, TED is a media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan “ideas worth spreading”. TED was founded in February 1984 as a conference, which has been held annually since 1990. TED Talks are influential videos from expert speakers on education, business, science, tech and creativity. (as seen on Wikipedia)
- On Love and Being a Decent Human Being:- Recently added to my list is this TED Talk Shah Rukh Khan gave that made me pause and reflect on how my unfriendly comments and thoughtless reactions affect the world in general. I definitely will be doing better. Thanks SRK for sharing. You are still my best Bollywood actor. 51 going on 21, forever.
- Can You Draw? No? You’re lying:- In Graham Shaw’s TED Talk, he shows us that the brain/mind is capable of anything. It is expandable and is able to learn new things, if we will just trust ourselves and follow guidelines. You can actually draw!
- Early to Bed, Early to Rise:- Shy Filipe Castro Matos, a Portuguese entrepreneur who is the co-founder of O MEU COPO (“MY GLASS”), talked about the importance of waking up early and ownng your day. What time do you wake up? You might want to check that.
- Be a Feminist, It is important:- Chimamanda Adichie (who is an actual human being and has flaws too, so cut her some slack) speaks on the importance of feminism and why we need it. You may have heard excerpts in Beyonce’s Flawless. Yeah, this is the speech.
- Say Yes – Change Something:- The hum will go, the hum may stay… choose to say Yes and push yourself a little step further. Shonda Rhimes, the second worst killer of your fav characters after George R.R. Martin, shares this talk with us and inspires us to push beyond the need to hear “the hum”
