Here I would like to share a couple of really cool websites for motivational talks by highly successful people. These are inspired talks by the world’s greatest thinkers and doers, ranging from best-selling authors and CEOs to web gurus. Check them out, I am pretty sure you’ll find them well worthy of your time.
In their own words:
“The annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).”
The TED website brings you the best talks from the annual TED conference. You can freely watch (and even download) talks on their website. All of the videos are available in pretty good quality along with the option to watch in full-screen mode.
There are lots of great presetations here, covering different areas of life. Some talk about our lifestyle and priorities, others about things like happiness, fighting poverty, emotions and so on.
Overall, it’s a pretty cool site. You might also want to grab their RSS feed and add it to your feedreader.
(2) The DO Lectures
I found out about The DO Lectures just recently. It’s a new site with a great concept “…the Doers of the world can inspire the rest of us to go Do something”
The site offers 15-30 min talks by about 20 ““. These include best-selling authors, architects, ecologists, a beekeeper, a climber and one rather clever inventor.
Similar to TED talks, all of the DO lectures are in fairly good quality. For those who are on a slower connection they offer lower quality streams. If you want to get some video on your iPod, there is a link for MP4 download as well.
That’s all there is. Enjoy! And if you are you familiar with any other similar website make sure you let us know about it in comments.
