This week, I spent the week painting our dining room. Usually, when I am working, I like to watch TV or listen to audiobooks. This week, I was all out of TV episodes I wanted to watch, and I hadn't found a new audiobook to listen to. (Let me tell you, that has changed! Audible has partnered with The Great Courses!!! Score!)
I turned to Ted. Ted is addicting. Once you start listening to Ted talks, you don't want to stop. Trust me. Ted talks are amazing. It's like having the world at your fingertips.
I suddenly had two very interested kids in the dining room with me. Sometimes, they were laughing so hard, they were crying. Sometimes, they were just amazed by the research and ideas they heard. They were always intrigued. Ted Talks are a gateway drug to learning, and learning is the path to awesome.
