Where are you speeding through where you should take more time? That’s my daily question. However, he brings up an interesting parallel, where are you too slow, heavy, and controlling?

It’s ok to make a swift impact, spur the thought of change, and then see how the ripple effect plays out. I see this daily as a leader – inspire your followers don’t boss them.

What’s Your Passion?

This could easily be a 2000 word manifesto on what drives us and how we identify our “passion.” In all aspects of life, it seems to be one of those buzz words… “Just follow your passion,” but really how do we know. What is MY passion?

I am a firm believer that our passions vary based on our many roles. I guarantee your professional passion is a bit different from what you consider it as a parent, partner, and friend.

So how do we know… what is it that motivates us, fills us up?

I don’t have the golden ticket, but Simon Sinek of “Start With Why” is damn close.

Early this week he posted a blog just one sentence long: “Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.

In the words of my hilarious friend; #boom

Ask yourself, are you stressed or in love?

25 songs to celebrate innovators: A Spotify playlist inspired by TEDWomen

It’s Tuesday… ROCK IT!

TED Blog

Inspired by the theme of TEDWomen 2013, “Invented Here,” we’ve created a killer playlist with songs about women who’ve innovated, made a difference, taken a stand and changed history in the process.

Our mixtape of tunes include: a Swedish dance-pop tribute to Marie Curie’s research on radioactivity, Jane Birkin’s ode to the work and ideals of Burmese political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi, an emotional love song dedicated to Georgia O’Keefe and a tongue-in-cheek punk rock commentary on Margaret Thatcher.

Sit back, turn up the volume and have a listen!

TEDWomen 2013 will be held in San Francisco, December 4-6, 2013, at the new SFJAZZ Center. Registration for the event opens today. Head to the TEDWomen site to find out how to apply »
