TED Talks and an Interview

First, I want to share one of my favorite TED talks of ALL time, Shawn Achor – “The Happiness Advantage: Linking Positive Brains to Performance”

Shawn Achor is an educator, author, and speaker known for positive psychology which links happiness to success.

If you are unfamiliar with TED talks, TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, which began in 1984 as an annual conference in Monterrey, California, and since then, a set of very interesting lectures have been recorded and shared free of charge via the internet. The tagline is “Ideas Worth Spreading.” You can find out more here, TED talks, but I warn you, it is very addicting! Though I don’t agree with everything that everyone says, I always come away with amazing ideas –  lovely brain food which keeps me nourished for days.

I also want to thank everyone who read along with me. I’ve always wanted to do a serial writing (in the style of Charles Dickens) and those six chapters were the closest I’ve come. It was really amazing to interact daily with those involved and I’ll have to do it again soon.  Finally, I had an author interview at Smashwords, you can read it here – Laryssa Waldron Interview.

Hope your day is well, and that you chose to be a magic unicorn as you focus on the privileges of your life! 😉
