Welcome to my version of the 31 days series. (Check it out if you want to see what people are committing to writing about during the month of October).
For the next 31 days, I’ll be curating my favorite TED talks over the years. I don’t know about you but when I take the time to watch a TED talk or two, I always wonder why I don’t make time every day to watch just one. They always inspire or make me think in a different way.
Each day, I’ll write a super short summary about an intriguing, inspiring, thought-provoking, or otherwise jaw-dropping TED talk.
Really, they usually speak for themselves, don’t they? Hope you follow along.
