What would your TED talk BE like?
No this isn’t about My TED Talk but you should really watch it here http://bit.ly/2pGCLkJ
I come from the part of the world where we almost joke about everything these days the memes on social media alone could lead you into how much creative juice we have left on the table without converting…memes that were both hilarious and struck a chord. One of such memes left a deep impression.
What would your TED talk be like?
For starters, TED is an acronym for Technology Entertainment and Design owned by sapling foundation led by it curator Media entrepreneur Chris Anderson All over the world the TED stage is like the Eldorado for the best Speakers, innovators, Influencers change agents you name it …who literally have an idea worth sharing.
So if you were given the opportunity to stand on this spotlight and the whole world was meant to listen as your audience for you speak to them, what would your message worth sharing be about?
What in your journey do you think the world would learn from and when you figure out what it is, that should be your TED talk. Scratch that, that should be your message and you don’t necessarily need a TED Stage.
Personally I think I had toiled with the thought of what mine was prior to Prior to mine so it was not completely a struggle when I had my shot. My generation had more young people who thought they needed permission to live their dreams and I thought differently of how the world had changed and how emasculated young people have become with strategic collaborations and something as ordinary like a laptop and internet. I’ve seen the magic and still see the magic happen you are normally unstoppable.
A friend I got talking to had this to share when I popped up the question to him “ I would talk about laziness and how it can completely stop you from achieving your goals” It sounded cliché until I asked Why laziness? And he shared his story and did it make sense? Too much sauce!! It happens he was in that Laziness cycle till he made some moves which took him to a different league where he is now and acing it.
He alone knows that feeling so if I dint probe further I would have misunderstood what this meant to him. So it is for what your own uniqueness is. You don’t need to sound like the rest of us. Come to think of it weird on that stage of life is the new cool and those who are weird enough to tell us how very important their own weird is wins.
What were your lessons learnt?
