Emily’s Fave TEDtalks List

So a while back I posted about my big book list and now I am happy to share my fave TEDtalks list! The difference between these lists besides one is books and one is videos is that I have actually watched all of these videos, unlike all of the books I have yet to open! Kyle first introduced me to TEDtalks a while back and since then I have been hooked! I love listening about things that I never knew existed or hearing inspirational speeches on how to change the world we live in. All of these videos have affected me in some way and I hope they make an impact on you as well!

Meg Jay: Why 30 is Not the New 20 (really made me think about my life)

“Clinical psychologist Meg Jay has a bold message for twentysomethings: Contrary to popular belief, your 20s are not a throwaway decade. In this provocative talk, Jay says that just because marriage, work and kids are happening later in life, doesn’t mean you can’t start planning now. She gives 3 pieces of advice for how twentysomethings can re-claim adulthood in the defining decade of their lives.”


Shawn Anchor: The Happy Secret To Better Work (hilarious but impact-full)

“We believe that we should work to be happy, but could that be backwards? In this fast-moving and entertaining talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that actually happiness inspires productivity.”


Sheryl Sandberg: Why We Have to Few Women Leaders (fave! fave! fave!)

“Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg looks at why a smaller percentage of women than men reach the top of their professions — and offers 3 powerful pieces of advice to women aiming for the C-suite.”


Sheryl Sandberg: Why We Have to Few Women Leaders (follow up from previous)

“Sheryl Sandberg admits she was terrified to step onto the TED stage in 2010 — because she was going to talk, for the first time, about the lonely experience of being a woman in the top tiers of business. Millions of views (and a best-selling book) later, the Facebook COO talks with the woman who pushed her to give that first talk, Pat Mitchell. Sandberg opens up about the reaction to her idea, and explores the ways that women still struggle with success.”
