You Don’t Need More Time, You Need More Energy

Are you feeling pressed for time? Take a 20-minute break and watch this TEDx Talk from Tony Schwartz, CEO of The Energy Project. According to Schwartz, refocusing and renewing your energy will help you cope with this “world of infinite demand.”

“We need to learn to manage our energy rather than our time,” he says. “It used to be—until recently, even—that if you needed to get more done, what did you do? You invested more hours. Well that’s fine, except time has a problem, doesn’t it? It’s finite.”

How Ted Turner Learned about Integrity

Honor and integrity are of the utmost importance in business, according to media mogul Ted Turner. In this video, Turner tells the story of how his father instilled those values in him from a very young age.

“My father was a great, great believer in personal integrity; honor,” Turner says. “Here I am, 72 years old, and I haven’t been indicted or accused of anything.”

Keep watching for Turner’s favorite quote on integrity from William Shakespeare.

Why Being Busy Isn't Impressive

In this spirited TEDx Youth Talk, reformed overachiever Carlin Daharsh explains why being busy is not the same thing as being productive and why it isn’t impressive.

“I had people coming at me from every direction [during high school], telling me what I needed to do, needed to learn, needed to know, needed to try, needed to be good at in order to be successful,” she says. “Now, I know that they only wanted what was best for me, but I became a victim of society’s theory implying the busier you are, the more impressive you seem.”

What unimportant tasks are you willing to give up?

Think you’re too busy for introspection? Think again.

Why You Need to Follow Your Own Path

Though he’s only 23 years old, Brian Wong is already a successful venture capitalist and founder of the mobile advertising company Kiip. In this chat with Darren Hardy, Wong talks about what it feels like to be looked at as an example of success and cautions us all to take his advice “with a grain of salt.”

“I did the things I did in my own economic environment, social environment, etc. etc. People always have their own unique environments that they thrive in, so try to take the principles that might be driving my decisions versus what I did,” Wong explains. “There is no playbook; there is no step-by-step.”

You Don't Have All the Answers, and That's OK

At some point in your life, you’ve been faced with a question you didn’t know the answer to. Think back: Did you own up to your ignorance or, like author and leadership advisor Peter Bregman, did you simply pretend to know?

In this eye-opening TEDx Talk, Bregman talks about the power he found when he stopped pretending and embraced uncertainty.

“The most engagement, the most creativity, the most innovation comes not from knowing things, but from not knowing things,” he says.

What are you feeling unsure about?
