This super short talk by Richard St. John is my second favourite TED talk.
A sub 4 minute distillation of his research to identify the characteristics that made people ‘successful’. It’s a great presentation and kind of gets you pumped up to do something with yourself, until you decide to make a cup of tea first. And have a biscuit. And see if there’s anything good on the internet.
Yeah, I know it’s pretty lame to jack a TED talk. And yes, it’s a presentation with a dude talking. On a stage. But he takes you through a coherent, engaging narrative in less than four minutes, so that’s pretty nubby in my book.
Check it out and get yourself amped for an exciting weekend.
