I finally had time to watch some TED talks yesterday. I didn’t know where to start, so I needed some guidance. Then I chanced upon this article from The Entrepreneur, ranking the 5 most popular TED talks of all time.
I don’t know what criteria they used to come up with the list. Because I saw some other talks that logged in more views than these five. Then again, I went on and watched each one of them. I couldn’t tell which one was my favorite. Because all of them struck a chord within me. I’d have to say each and everyone was memorable, and I picked up an important lesson from each of them. I also picked up a soundbite from each, the byline that stuck to me.
