There are many reasons people connect with TED Talks; some watch to be entertained, some watch because they are invested in the subject matter, and others still watch to sneak a quick break from work. But did you ever think to watch TED Talks to improve your life?
There are a multiplicity of TED Talks on precisely that topic: speakers who present methods for you to make your own life more fulfilling and better. These are kind of “required viewing” for TED, the sort of talks that can change your life, if you let them.
Simon Sinek’s talk on how leaders inspire action, for example, is one of the top-viewed TED Talks of all time. His lesson is very simple, and with the use of one simple mantra, he changed the way many viewed those who lead.
Another seminal Talk was given by the affable and extremely well-spoken Sir Ken Robinson. That’s right, he’s been knighted, so he knows what he’s talking about, and what he’s talking about is the idea that schools kill our creativity from a young age. This talk is the most viewed TED Talk, and combines both humor and constructive innovation.
Finally, we come to a Talk from someone we all know of: the legendary Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computers. In this Talk, Jobs tells us how to live a quality life, chase dreams, and feel contented with ourselves with our time on Earth.
So there you have it, three of the top-viewed TED Talks that everyone in the world should see at one point or another. Be sure to make time for these wonderful nuggets of information, and also make sure to buy your tickets for TEDxChapmanU, on June 4th!
