TED Talks on You Tube

Today I’ve been trying to get some stuff done in the way of organizing my living room. I am a terrible clutterbug, but I come by it honestly. I’m genetically predisposed from birth, and I climb up that organizational mountain every day. If I’m honest with myself, though, most days I don’t even bother to climb the mountain at all. If I don’t get my lack of organization under control, I will end up like another member of my family, but I’ll go into that another day.

So, in trying to get going today I couldn’t decide what I wanted to listen to while I organize.  After a little while I settled on listening to Ted Talks on You Tube.  This explanation is from TED Talks home page (www.ted.com):

TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.

Ted Talks are fabulous, and have something for everyone. People from all walks of life and occupation give talks on their particular areas of understanding. There are visuals, and while they aren’t necessarily needed to digest the information given, I have to say that they are pretty cool. Fascinating stuff…In no time at all, I had finished one task and am happily off to another. I think having something good to listen to completely distracts me from whatever crappy task it is I have at hand.

Having said that, I guess I’ll quit procrastinating and get on with my next task!

    Sparrow: Thanks so much for sharing your comments about TED with your readers. I totally enjoy TED Talks and sites like TED and “fed” my addiction by creating videotalks.org — a robust site that links to dozens of TED-like sites. It was a joy putting the site together and always a joy to share the many not-so-known sites with other lovers of talks! Thanks again for your comments. Jim Melfi
