Neil Pasricha of 1000 Awesome Things

Neil Pasricha of 1000 Awesome Things gave a funny and motivational talk at TEDx in Toronto last fall. He talks about how he started his blog, his book deal and how many amazing things there are in the world to be thankful for.

It is a great presentation and message but I also love how simple his idea was for his blog. The simplest ideas are often the most well received. I talked about big ideas like this in previous posts: Get Rich Quick: Big Ideas for Big Money! and Big Ideas to Make Big Money. The problem is that simple can actually be quite difficult because people tend to be overly critical and dismiss the ideas too early.

It is very hard to do what everyone else is doing and succeed, a simple, yet novel idea is the only way.

    Thanks for sharing this video, John! My friends and I are big TED fans, and one of my friends had mentioned this video, but then I completely forgot about it. And it was so worth watching! I think I will watch it every time I think I’m having a really bad day – or a good day. It’s never a bad idea to focus on the positive.
