3 Great Videos from TED

The following three videos from TED are not necessarily related to business or investing. But you should watch them anyway.

Benjamin Zander: Classical music with shining eyes

Benjamin Zander has two infectious passions: classical music, and helping us all realize our untapped love for it — and by extension, our untapped love for all new possibilities, new experiences, new connections. [See Zander’s book “::amazon(“0142001104″,”The Art of Possibility”)::”].

Chris Abani: Telling stories of our shared humanity

Chris Abani tells stories of people: People standing up to soldiers. People being compassionate. People being human and reclaiming their humanity. It’s “ubuntu,” he says: the only way for me to be human is for you to reflect my humanity back at me. [See his first TED speech here].

Sir Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. [This is an old talk, but if you’ve never seen it, stop everything you’re doing and watch it now.]
