TED Talks in your calendar - Inspiration!

A quick thought. We all know how valuable and inspirational watching a TED Talk is for our psyche. When was the last time you watched one? I challenge you to watch two per week. That is 30 minutes of your time.

The only way you will actually do this is to schedule it. Put it in your calendar at a time when you know you can do it. Really. Right now. With a reminder.  And make it reoccurring.

Subject: Heather wants to remind you to watch a TED Talk right now.

Body:  Go get some inspiration - its only 15 minutes - http://www.ted.com/

I watch my favorites over and over and I try to catch a new 1-2 every week.

There are 1900+ videos available so there is something for everyone. AND there are three minute snack sized ones, no excuses.
