1. Magda Sayeg:-“Doing what you love can become a career when you least expect it”
Magda Sayeg is a textile artist, but she didn’t set out to be one, she explains in this brief and colorful talk. In fact, she was a math major, but one day, out of a desire to relieve the endless gray and hardness of a modern urban environment with something colorful and soft and fuzzy, she wrapped a steel door handle in knitted fabric.
2.Brian Eno:-“Frustration inspires creativity”
What should you do when your creativity flags and you’re feeling really stuck? Try tying your dominant hand behind your back. This logic (although not this specific advice) comes from a fascinating talk by economist Tim Harford, who notes that the best-selling solo piano album of all time came about when a brilliant pianist was obliged to play on a really terrible piano.
The legendary musician and producer Brian Eno use this knowledge to his advantage too.
3.Robert Waldinger:-“Good relationships make you happier and healthier than wealth or fame”
What makes people happiest? To find out, Harvard University began tracking a group of its male students–and a comparable group of young men from Boston’s poorest neighborhood. In this thought-provoking talk, Robert Waldinger, the study’s current head, says the evidence is in and it’s incontrovertible.
