NYC agent Jillian Loiacono was inspired by this compilation of videos 9 Best TED Talks to Help You Kick Ass at Work (and in Life) and suggested we pass it along.
Though we fully realize these types of posts are usually saved for January, why not start now?
It’s a great way to get motivated before spending the holiday season explaining UX (or front end development, apps, etc.) to your Uncle Phil. And, heck, maybe you'll even want to give your own TED talk.
Our favorites? Scott Dinsmore's amazing story of quitting his job to pursue work that really matters and Nigel Marsh’s talk, “Work-Life Balance Is an Ongoing Battle” (when he presented this he was the Regional Group CEO of Young and Rubicam Brands for Australia & New Zealand.)
If you have only a few minutes before jumping into your next meeting, we suggest “How to Survive Meetings” by information security manager David Grady, below? Seems appropriate.
