For the past few days, I’ve been enjoying some TED talks. During my 7-Day Internet Consumption Reset, I wanted to find an educational medium that I could watch due to my YouTube restriction. Most of the TED talks I’ve watched are not only inspirational but also funny and interesting.
I believe consuming content like this ignites something within you. I’ve also noticed that I rarely watch more than 2 talks in one sitting, which great difference compared to YouTube.
Currently, I’m using the TED app, which isn’t perfect, and sometimes the videos don’t play as expected. However, it’s a much better alternative than watching TED talks on YouTube, where I’m just one click away from a 2h+ session. I always set English subtitles and adjust the playback speed (from 1.5x to 2x depending on the video and topic).
I know there are tons of amazing talks out there, but here are some of my favorites so far.
