You come into work, check your calendar, and see that your day is packed full of meetings.
So, what do you do? I found a coping method that might seem unusual: TED Talks.
As you may know, TED (technology, entertainment, and design) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading ideas, typically in short, compelling talks, each no longer than 18 minutes. The TED conference covers almost any topic you can imagine, and I’ve viewed a wide array of topics, from “career advice you probably didn’t get” to “the first secret of design.”
As 2016 picks up, I thought I’d share five talks that have resonated with me; each had a key takeaway to help you get through that rough day of meetings.
We wouldn’t let a co-worker get away with stealing our office chair, so why do we let them steal our most valuable possession, time?
