How to make filing inspiring

How to make filing inspiring

by Moyra Mackie on May 24, 2014

I hate filing and I love TED Talks.

So in an effort to motivate myself to keep up with all the necessary admin involved in running a business, I make sure I listen to a TED talk whilst wrestling with paperwork.

Sometimes it doesn’t work.  Because sometimes the talks are so compelling that I have to watch as well as listen.

I’m far from on my own. The TED website estimates that they receive 17 page views a second.

This is TED’s mission:

“TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.

We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On, we’re building a clearing house of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.”
