I Found My TED idea!
This morning I went to the first Transforming Speakers TED training that I have been able to attend in a while, having missed the last two due to previous commitments. It was inspiring to see how far each member of the group had come in their journey while I had been away. Today we shared our topic ideas, and gave each other feedback on how to refine our messages and build cohesive talk structures.

The TED Journey Continues
It's been a crazy few weeks and my goal of evaluating at least three TED talks a night has been abandoned.
I may have to resign myself to doing these evaluations in longer sittings, giving up on the ever elusive concept of consistency and surrendering to my more familiar binge-watching tendencies. Today I watched ten TED talks in a row. I am still hopelessly behind. I also missed the last training meeting with my group because I was teaching my own workshop. I feel like I've bitten off more than I can chew.
Still, I am feeling really hopeful about this project with Transforming Speakers. The TED talk evaluation process comes naturally to me. The advantage of binge watching videos is that seeing multiple talks in a row gives me more perspective on structure and content, dampening my usual preoccupation with the speaker's vocal delivery, which is always first and foremost to my enjoyment on a personal level. The talks from this evening's list were less inspiring than the first batch. Perhaps I am getting jaded already. 

Do I Have What It Takes To Give A TED Talk?
I have signed up for an extremely cool course on TED training through Transforming Speakers. We will meet in person six times and be given assignments and coaching on how to discern our key "TED" idea, and prepare a powerful message. The course is based on the book "How to Rock a TED Talk" by Cathey Armillas. As a speaker and a coach, I am not only excited to be exploring how to craft and study TED talks for personal reasons, but also so that I can be of more use to my clients.
The first meeting was quite intimidating. . .
