Watch these 5 TED Talks for a productive start to your week
We are all looking for a pick-me-up after the weekend is over. Many of us aren’t looking forward to the same old hectic routine which we repeat over and over again. TED Talks are a source of motivation for all of us plus they increase knowledge in various domains of the future. They also address conventional problems because those who have lived through them can advise you better regarding the possible solution.
Given below, we have compiled 5 TED Talks to help you start off your week productively:
Simon Sinek – How great leaders inspire action?
The TED Talk is from world-renowned motivational speaker Simon Sinek and it explores the basic mistakes and assumptions that make many of us managers rather than leaders. It also explores various strategies employed by companies to promote their products as to which ones were successful and why. One of the key takeaways from this talk is that you will be able to better identify how to handle your team and make them promote your product better towards the audience that actually needs it.
Julian Treasure – How to speak so that people want to listen?
Julian Treasure aptly explains why many people don’t listen to speakers even though they may have valid points. Problems like gossips, negativity, dogmatism, and others influence our speaking style and the topics we discuss, this ultimately makes the listener not pay attention. If you think someone is not listening to you, watch and learn from this video, you will certainly feel a difference.
Kelly McGonigal – How to make stress your friend?
Prior to the common perception that stress is bad for health, Kelly busts the myth through a survey conducted in the U.S which showed that people who took stress actually lived a longer and healthier life. Kelly is a health psychologist and she fears that the fact that we have been told that stress is bad for health is actually causing a lot of harm in society. By turning stress into an enemy, we have been doing it wrong all along. Watch the video to learn more.
Tammy Lally – Let’s get honest about our money problems
We all complain about money problems but do we actually take a moment to analyze what’s wrong with our habits? Tammy tells the story of her own brother who committed suicide due to bankruptcy, leaving behind his wife and 2 children. The fact that we want to buy luxury and keep up with the higher class due to “standards” is driven by our subconscious mind. The society also forces us to believe that we are flawed even if we have genuine issues. Watch the video to learn how to tackle this.
Laura Vanderkam – How to gain control of your free time?
We have all been there. When we start our day off and go through our daily tasks, it seems like time is flying and we don’t have our own “personal” time. People say that they don’t have time for various stuff but it all depends upon how we prioritize each task upon us. If we are faced with an unfortunate situation, we have to reschedule everything no matter and that ultimately destroys our daily routine. We have free time during the day but we don’t see it because of the way we have organized our lives. Watch this video to learn how to gain control of your free time!
