TED talks for slow mornings
My morning routine consist of a special little treat I allow myself. While eating breakfast and sipping newly brewed coffee I watch TED talks. I am eager to learn about new things, and if you are too - you should consider to watch this shit:
Danish: Min morgen rutine består af en særlig lille treat. Mens jeg spiser morgenmad og sipper nylavet kaffe sætter jeg gerne en ted talk på skærmen. Det er en dejlig og rolig måde at starte dagen på, og det inspirerer mig altid til at komme i gang med dagens arbejde. Jeg elsker at lære nye ting - og hvis du har det på samme måde, så burde du tjekke nogle af nedenstående videoer ud:
My love-affair with TED started 5 years ago when I found this video, and fell in love with both TED and Stefan. How awesome it is to close down a well-known New York studio, to take a yearlong sabbatical year on Bali, working only on personal non-commercial projects. That's what Stefan do every 7 year!
Many people run so fast in the search for happiness (me included). But maybe we should stop running...
I stumbled upon several quotes by Pico Lyer and I was eager to know more about him. This talk questions the meaning of home, the lust for seeing the world and the serenity of standing still.
Funny talk about procrastination on both a small deadline-to-deadline based scale but most importantly throughout your life. What are you spending your time on?
This talk related to Elizabeth Gilberts talk. It is about flow - what is it, and how do we get in that state? How can we combine worklife, flow and creativity to life a happy life. Some really good points.
I am often amazed at how the creative process works. Often, it does not make sense at all. But maybe there is a reason for it. Gilbert questioning where ideas and creativity come from? And her thoughts are quite interesting!
Positive psychology fascinates me. In this speech Shawn Achor talk about how to life a happy life. How to train the brain to be happy and how not to wait for happiness on the other side of your next succes. It is about raising the level of positivity in the present.
Interesting talk about how people come up with great ideas. That they look and act quite ordinary. That they procrastinate a lot! And that they embrace their failures: "The greatest originals are the ones who fail the most, because they're the ones who try the most".
An interesting talk about motivation and creative thinking. About how most companies ignore what social scientists know about leadership, which is why they fail to create a work culture that make the employees work and think more creative.
Through Scott Dinsmore's Passionate Work Framework he teach us how to find out what matters to you using three simple practices. He talks of the importance of surrounding yourself with positive people that inspires you and motivates you. There is a lot of great advice in this video.
