On October 10, I spoke at the TEDx Orange Coast conference in Orange County (TEDx conferences are independently organized TED events). The topic was “Redefining Relevance.”
I was unbelievably excited and honored to be asked to speak (I have always loved watching TED talks!). I decided to talk about how as we get older, we judge ourselves more and more. This judgment inhibits our imagination/”inner child,” which is the key to all innovation.
The day of, I was horribly nervous. However, as soon as I stepped into the hall to hear the first speech, my fears dissipated. I was in awe of the other people giving talks. With each person, I felt like my mind was expanding. Every single speaker had something absolutely fascinating to say.
I ended up having a blast, not only in giving my talk, but also in being surrounded by such insightful minds. It was a BEYOND amazing experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.
A couple of days ago, the videos of all the talks were released on Youtube. I’ve posted mine here, but I also want to encourage you all to watch some of the others. Trust me, it would be 10 minutes VERY well spent.
I really hope you enjoy!
