T is for Ted

I don't know about you, but when I'm feeling stuck or uninspired, sometimes I just need to listen to some brilliant and funny people. I'm totally indebted to the Ted talks for recharging my batteries. If you haven't taken the time to listen to any Ted talks yet, do yourself a favor and try one right now. 

Here's one of my favorites. Elizabeth Gilbert (on your elusive creative genius):



What's your favorite Ted talk?

  1. I only think to listen to the TED talks when someone points them out to me. I should make more of an effort to think of it on my own. :) (I've heard this one by Gilbert and love it!)

  4. I LOVE LOVE LOVE TED Talks! You can even find them on Netflix. So sometimes I will watch them while I walk on the treadmill. I have learned so many interesting things and been inspired by these super smart people!
