TED rule 8Posted: May 9, 2011
Siberut, Mentawai islands, West Sumatra
I’m on a remote island, 10 hours boat from the world. It’s beautiful, or at least I imagine. And I don’t have access to internet. Well, to be honest I’m not sure… So I’m writing this short 8th TED rule from Padang on Thursday, just before taking the boat. And hopefully it will be published on Monday, as usual.
Today, it’s time for a wow talk recommended by my friend Lucy. Not much to say to introduce Caroline Casey, just watch her:
C’est ici pour la version francaise
I have learn cars and motorbike and elephants, that’s not freedom. Beeing absolutely totally yourself is freedom. I never needed eyes to see. I simply needed vision and belief. And if you truly believe, and I mean believe from the bottom of your heart, you could make change happen. And we need to make it happen.
I don’t ride elephant but a motorbike. I’m not either an Irish woman, and I’m not blind. But I hope I will reach the same conclusion as her. This TED rule is simple: I’ll use this TED talk again at the end of my trip.
