Before I Die I Want To…December 9, 2012 - Author: Denise - Comments are closed
I’m preparing to speak at the TEDxABQED conference in January, something that has me bouncing like Tigger on his tail from the heights of excitement to the depths of anxiety. The TEDx process is a colossal creative endeavor. I attend the meetings-slash-workshops-slash-rehearsals and walk away each time humbled and energized by the people who work long and hard to create this experience. I count myself fortunate to be a part of it.
But “it” is bigger than the conference in January. The premise of TED is simple—“Ideas worth spreading.” It is an opportunity to share our ideas and passions and just maybe change the world in the process. I believe TED is successful not only because it shares these ideas, but because it taps into our core and connects us through storytelling. If you’ve never watched a TED talk, do yourself a favor and spend some time doing so.
I peruse the TED site often, and find a new favorite every time. Today, I came across this short 6-minute talk and I want to share. But I don’t want you to just watch it. I want you to continue the story. After watching the talk, tell me—what is one thing you want to do before you die? Comment here, or on my Facebook, and let’s create a public space in a virtual space.
