My new plan is to do a post every Wednesday. I see & hear so many interesting things in TED talks, books, articles, facebook posts I could write a few posts every day, but my goal is not to just have an interesting list of articles, it's to build a framework that can be populated by others, populated in a way that is easy for anyone to navigate, to get high quality information to help them achieve a goal quickly and efficiently. Think of it like uber, the creators of uber are not trying to be everyone's taxi driver, but they want to connect people looking to be a taxi with someone that needs a taxi, as efficiently as possible. I want to try to do that with the information you need to live the life you want to live, and achieve your goals. So I'm going to resist too many posts to spend some time building the framework.
What you can do in term of finding interesting stories? I highly recommend using the TEDTalk Video podcast, as an audio podcast while you commute, or anytime you're looking for something to listen to. There is an audio only podcast but last I checked they didn't post as many talks as the video one, and it's the exact same as simply not looking at the video. So, put your phone down, do what you're doing and just listen to the video. The nice thing is if there is something you want to see you can just pick up your phone rather than go look up the video.
I recommend just listening to every single one as they come out. Don't look at the title and wondering if it's worth your time, you may not realize it is interesting until you listen. You may not think it was worth it until the end, or a little later. Some you may think weren't worth it, but that's a small price to pay in mind.
If you want to know some old ones you've missed, ask a friend, they might not have heard of the podcast or they might have a few they'd love to share.
Here is one that my friend loves and re-watches every so often.
I'm only going to give you the link so you can't watch it here, just go there, download it and try it as an audio podcast.
