I'm a learner. I've gotten really good at finding resources and absorbing everything I can from them. TED talks are one of my favorites. A presenter stands in front of a live audience and speaks. The speak on every and anything. TED is an acronym for technology, entertainment and design. Most talks can be whittled down to one of the three, others are uplifting in other categories.
I'm surprised by the number of people I come across who aren't familiar or haven't heard of TED talks. There's so much value here. I've came across this talk by Andrew Stanton a second time earlier this week. I think it's fitting to some previous posts I've written on. Stanton is a has been involved with Pixar films since Toy Story, through the sequel to Finding Nemo (set to release in 2016) and multiple favorites in between. In this talk, he explains what makes a story something so intriguing that people wait for it to end. Do yourself a favor and take 20 minutes of your day to watch this:
