5 favourite ted talks @reclaimingheart.com

We are living in an awesome world. Brilliant ideas are just a click away now. I love the internet world for that. Or shall I say am kinda addicted to this e-world? And literally, I spend hours immersed in surfing and get lucky enough to find some gems. Through FridayFinds, I will share those gems with you guys. Oh, such a generous goddess I am!

Ted is a nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading ideas through small talks of usually less than 18 minutes. Everybody know Ted Talks. And many of you might be a regular follower of their talks. I adore those talks. And there are many talks that hooked me in there. But lemme share five today.

1.Do Schools Kill Creativity? by KEN ROBINSON

 

This has been the topmost in Teds Best Talks of all time for many years. And as you listen, you can’t agree more.

Points to Ponder :

Picasso once said this, he said that all children are born artists. The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up. I believe this passionately, that we don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we get educated out of it.So why is this?”

2. Why you will fail to have a great career? by LARRY SMITH

 

This is a Tedx talk but listed in the featured TEDx talks in Ted website. And as you go through this hilarious thought provoking talk, you will know why.

Points to Ponder :

Passion is your greatest love. Passion is the thing that will help you create the highest expression of your talent. Passion, interest — it’s not the same thing. ”

3.  Learning From A Barefoot Movement by BUNKER ROY

 

This is not a celebrated Ted Talk in the sense of hit lists. But I was amazed by this real life story of Barefoot Movement. I am sure you would find this the same way.

And click here for the transcript if you couldn’t play the video somehow.

Points to Ponder:

“So we built the first Barefoot College in 1986. It was built by 12 Barefoot architects who can’t read and write, built on $1.50 a sq. ft. 150 people lived there, worked there. They got the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 2002.”

4. The Power Of Introverts by SUSAN CAIN

 

Ted talks play a good role in demystifying popular public notions. This talk is such a brilliant move in that direction. Watch Susan Cain revealing the extra ordinary power of introverts in an extrovert based society.

Points to Ponder:

“Our most important institutions, our schools and our workplaces, they are designed mostly for extroverts and for extroverts’ need for lots of stimulation. ”

5.  The Muslim On the Aeroplane by AMAL KASSIR

 

The Muslim on the airplane

Again this is a TEDx talk. I love this talk because of the relevance of the topic in today’s panic stricken world with ever deepening ethnic divides.But how can we solve these complicated problems when each side lives in fear of the other? Watch this to know how.

Points to Ponder:

“They say the shortest distance between two people is a story. Well, I elaborate on that to say that the greatest distance you can travel in the shortest amount of time, is by asking someone their name.”

Did you love this list?
