I am really a fan of TED talks, I watch them for entertainment, to learn something new and when I am bored. Their slogan basically says it all “Ideas Worth Spreading”. There are over 1700 TED talks recorded, but I want to present a list of my all-time favorites.
- “How great leaders inspire action” by Simon Sinek. An exceelent talk about leadership and its true meaning. I highly suggest watching all of his talks.
- “The best stats you’ve ever seen” by Hans Rosling. This is even more fun than watching sports. A saturated and vibrant talk about statistics.
- “How schools kill creativity” by Ken Robinson. One of the most popular TED talks out there, this is truly a must see for anyone.
- “My stroke of insight” by Jill Bolte Taylor. Where else could you get an insight of a person experiencing a stroke? And she is not a random person but also a neuroanatomist which makes her insights even more interesting.
- “Life lessons from an ad man” by Rory Sutherland. Great delivery and an overall interesting talk. Some of his ideas are a bit crazy but entertaining nonetheless.
- “The transformative power of classical music” by Benjamin Zander. Nobody is tone deaf. It doesn’t matter whether you like classical music or not, this talk is for everyone.
