Ideas Worth Spreading

Sharing My 10 Favorite TED Talk Videos.


Hey guys,

How are you?

This week I was unsure about what to write about and share in the newsletter. This doesn't always happen, but occasionally it does, and I'm okay with that.

As you can guess from the title and subtitle, this week's newsletter will be a bit different from the usual ones I send.

But it still perfectly fits with the A Bit of Inspiration newsletter.

I'm sharing my top 10 favorite TED Talks that I've watched throughout the years, in no particular order.

You might have seen some of them, while others could be new to you. These are the ones that have expanded my horizons and changed my perspective:

  1. Do schools kill creativity? by Sir Ken Robinson
  2. The power of vulnerability by Brené Brown
  3. How great leaders inspire action by Simon Sinek
  4. Grit: The power of passion and perseverance by Angela Lee Duckworth
  5. The power of introverts by Susan Cain
  6. How to get your ideas to spread by Seth Godin
  7. How your brain responds to stories by Karen Eber
  8. Creativity is a remix by Kirby Ferguson
  9. Why specializing early doesn't always mean career success by David Epstein
  10. How to Find Attention, Mindfulness, and Creativity in the Ordinary by Bill Keaggy


Before leaving you off the hook, what's your favorite TED Talk video(s)? Please share it with me either through email or DM me on X.


Thanks a lot for reading, as always.

If you enjoyed the issue, please share it with someone you think will enjoy it, too.

Until next time,

Stay inspired!

2. FEB. 2023 Think Like a Designer How to Live the Good Life Your time is finite, and with each passing day, you age. Have you ever paused and wondered if you're moving towards a meaningful direction, or just going with the flow? The alarm rings, and you hit snooze, rising half-asleep from bed. You check your phone, then enter the bathroom to brush your teeth and shower, moving through the motion without much thought. Breakfast is made and eaten somewhat automatically, with frequent phone...

19. JAN. 2023 Own Your Digital Space Why You Shouldn't Rely on Social Media Hey guys, The noise on social media is loud. Everyone is fighting for attention, seeking followers, likes, and shares.
