I love TED. Everyone loves TED. Wondering what is everyone's favorite TED. Here's mine:
It's like asking someone to pick a favorite child. They're all great for different reasons.
One I saw recently that struck a chord with me (pun sort've intended) was Benjamin Zander talking about why we all like classical music. It was inspiring for many reasons, the least of which is his delivery.
Thanks for making me think about this.

Sir Ken kicks ass. Not only is he brilliant, but he's also after a better world.
My latest TED connection is with Andrea Kates who created the Business Genome. It's a tool that maps businesses by DNA, which allows businesses to learn from each other, despite different industries (e.g. Jiffy Lube could learn from the positive waiting room experience at a day spa, etc.).
The website is www.business-genome.com if you want to check it out. The Stages section is most useful . . .

I couldn't agree more. I have shared this link many, many times. His book Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative is worth a read too.

Too many good one to choose from. But 3 recent standouts for me are:
Elizabeth Gilbert - https://snipr.com/chksu
Dave Eggers (accepting his TED Prize) - https://snipr.com/chky6
Those two are inspirational. This is mind-blowing:
Juan Enriquez - https://snipr.com/chjlz
Great blog by the way.
