Not found your calling yet?
Do you feel like you are always being pulled in different areas and can’t settle on your one true passion? This talk is great at helping you to realise that not having one single passion is ok and can actually be beneficial.
Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don’t: Traditional rewards aren’t always as effective as we think.
How to stop making bad decisions
Psychologist Dan Gilbert presents research and data from his own exploration of happiness. His findings might change how you think about happiness, in particular what you think makes you happy. The talk also has some surprising tests and experiments that you can try.
Why you should celebrate your failure
When you fail at something some of us have a natural instinct to try to forget about it. It can cause us to feel frustrated, sad and a little bit silly, but you should focus on your failure and transform it into your strength. This talk is delivered by the head of X (formerly Google X) Astro Teller.
