TedTalks are my second favourite podcast series to listen to, after The New Yorker Fiction Series. I think I get just a little bit smarter every time I hear one. Sadly, however I find myself with less time to listen. Going to fix that, I promise.
In the mean time, I thought I’d share my faves with you this fine Monday morning. Kickstart the work-week with these inspirational TedTalks that make you want to give yourself a rousing pep-talk in the bathroom mirror. You can do this! You’re winning! You’ve got this! You’ll make it! Let’s Go!
- Meg Jay’s provocative message on reclaiming the most defining decade of your life: Why 30 is not the new 20.
- Sheryl Sandberg’s insightful talk that kind of summarises her book, Lean In (a.k.a. The Feminist Manifesto): Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders.
- Shawn Achor’s utterly funny talk on how happiness actually leads to success, and not the other way round: The Happy Secret to Better Work.
- Nigel Marsh’s inspirational argument on how to make work-life balance work. Hint: it’s your job, not your employer’s.
- Amy Cuddy’s eye-opening expose on how our body language impacts our success by raising or lowering our self-confidence.
Hope you enjoy them (and share with your friends)! Do you listen to TedTalks often? Which are your favourites? If this is your first time hearing about Ted, did you like these ones?
