Here is one... what makes it stand out is the passion, and the using of sound effects... her own voice, really authentic... I really loved it.
But what makes it really my favorite, that my clients and students who have been in a quandary about who they are... are starting to see the importance of recognizing the pattern this TED talk introduces: how you make up a new identity that is wholly inauthentic to you.
I am on a roll... I will be watching, and posting if I find the TED talk useful.
Two things about this coming TED talk: the more views a talk has, the more the talker speaks the common man's language, beliefs, and stuff... words that are inaccurate.
Regardless, this is a good talk. Not excellent, but good, and worth your time.
I always check if my female students will relate to it... and if it is a yes, I'll post it.
Yesterday I found a quote that shook me to my core... So I want to start with that. You could say: that quote accurately expresses my attitude about life... and I am moved by that
It is 60% truth value, not because 40% of it is not true, but because it doesn't quite distinguish the path, doesn't look at the invisible dynamics of life it a way, that people can catch themselves as they make themselves miserable...

Rules, hypotheses, theories are cultural, dated, and rarely even true in the environment where they are first invented.
Like democracy... or what is right and what is wrong... and 97% of what you read in "informative" articles, courses, books, on the internet.
They may even hint on the some principle, like Michael Gladwell's books, or the Grit book, or many others... hint... hinting is not saying! They don't quite know what the principle is, or it may not be politically correct in this day and age. Or not sexy. Or won't sell books.
Just observe your refusal to consider any true principle... and you'll get why those articles and those "authors" put their emphasis on sexy... because you won't read it unless it is innocuous (not considered harmful or offensive) and in some ways tells you that you are greater than you are...

You can pick anything. But it must be a skill that includes visible results... measurable results.
If you want to learn the skill of reading... at the end of the 20th hour you'll be able to read without losing attention of patience... length of time, comprehension, number of books is a measurable, visible result.
If you want to learn the ukulele... just get ready to play to an audience.
If you want to learn to move your attention from your emotions, thoughts, reactions to reality... we'll measure your results by the percentage of time you spend in your mind, being miserable.
If you want to learn to cook, let's say, Hungarian dishes, we'll see and taste your dishes... it is visible, and tangible.
It is really up to you to pick the target... and then follow through.
