It’s no surprise that many of the cool gadgets we have today are become of an inventive story teller from long ago. This is why it’s important for children to watch movies and TV shows that inspire, instead of worrying about what the rating of the program is. That’s how creativity is stunted. Imagine where the world of entertainment would be if this little boy wasn’t allowed to watch all the movies he did growing up? All the science fiction items below came from dreamers who were allowed to be creative. It is the world of Star Wars and Star Trek that has pushed so many to bring to life all the things we’ve seen in those movies and tv shows. You can click on the image below to read more from gizmodo about some of the inventions that we take for granted today.
It’s no surprise that there are people who like learning and there are those that don’t. Infact, science has shown now that it requires a lot of mental energy in order to learn something new. It takes true concentration in order to listen, I mean really know how to listen, and be able to comprehend, digest the content, and be able to retain it. You can see why some people believe that getting up and going about their day doing their own thing is enough for them instead of the need to find time to have to sit down and learn something new.
For those that view learning as a pleasurable activity and crave it, there is a place you can go to listen to some of the greatest minds speak their mind and it all happens within the magical space of 18 minutes. If you want to know why only 18 minutes I encourage you to perform a search on it and see what you find. I didn’t include a link this time because it’s important to know how to find information on your own.
You always want to see what other great minds are doing, this helps you to see what trends, research, and businesses are being created by other entrepreneurs. You might have an idea to start a program that provides support to recent college grads, but after watching one of the TED videos you might learn that someone else is already doing that. You can either offer to join their team or compete against their by creating your own business model. The idea is you should always be curious to learn what other people are doing and how they went about making it come true.
The links below are all connected to one place with one purpose, to share an idea.
This is a partial list of some of the best TED talks ever given. Try to include at least one TED talk into your daily life and you will be all the better for it because it means that the knowledge you take away from their talk is put forth in the work you do in this world. You might not be an educator, like I am, but after listening to Sir Ken Robinson you’ve learned that schools kill creativity and that there is a need to balance the shortfall of schools. If you take away something from these videos it will only be to better the world and yourself.
