In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
For Me I make things Systems as easy as possible, I learn more reading and creating my lifestyle ... I know we can have what ever we choose to have.... believe and you can.. I have found that when I surround myself with likeminded people we as a unit have mush more positive energy and success
Unfortunately pop song writers squirm their way out of actually working hard to make a good song by using these four chords, because it triggers a friendly familiarity in the listener's mind, so they're more likely to like that specific song if it has the same familiar four chords.
To be honest what he said is true about 20hrs rule. I didnt know him until i saw his video in goal cast, i applied his method in gym unknowingly. I used to procrastinate to workout and find reasons to avoid it but somehow i found motivation to do 20mins of workout per day either at gym or at home. I truly gave my 20mins of attention and focus towards my workouts for 20mins each day and i did started seeing the results of being more active whole day and always ready to hit gym after work and basically i stopped being lazy. It becomes a habit if we practice something for 20mins a day and eventually we find ways to master that skill perfectly.. Bottom line is make the skill that you want to learn as a habit and make sure give 20mins of time for it per day without any distractions..🙏
eu vou aprender a tocar violão em 20 horas, vou aprender a fazer alguns truques com bola de futebol em 20 horas, vou aprender a fazer malabarismo com moto-cerras flamejantes em 20 horas, kkkk, não será com moto-cerras e sim com bolas de ténis.
Excellent point about the supposed "10K Hour Rule," and the applicability of "20 Focused Hours" to just "get" something. Plus, the outfit, hat and all, while playing the uke - and making the point - was just adorkable. Nicely done!
I think you totally misunderstood the ideas behind 10,000 hours and it's totally wrong to apply the idea to learn new things. How sad! The research you mentioned was just not convincing because who, when, how and what? Just watch those audience facial expressions, you can tell they don't buy it. Because after all the logic just doesn't make sense.
yeah... if he thinks that he is reasonably good in playing ukulele than ok... the fact is that he can do "something", but he's still a beginner. The first 20 hours is enough to see if you enjoy it and want to spend more time to practice but that's all. If you want to be quite good at something more complex than hula-hop, you need much more time.
It takes 10000 hrs to learn about a subject to be able to decompose the subject so the first step which is decomposing requires expert knowledge. That was a funny to say you need 20 hrs. The steps is correct however performing the first step ( decomposition, deconstruction) requires high level of competency on that subject.
what i want to know is how many people actually picked up a new skill with this? this taught nothing besides the obvious. of you have to set small goals of course you have to learn about what your learning. the hard part is overcome your own fear about being a failure or not good enough. theres no magic pill or secret 20 hrs. its just your own self. pick up some self help books. go see a counselor or something .
Another thing to add is "Laser Focus", with so much of free information we have today, we easily get distracted from them. For instance, if you want to play guitar, you will end up subscribing to 1000 of free tutorials and end up doing nothing :-D.
I feel that "Deconstructing the skill" is not an easy task for me...let's say I wanna learn to build a video game. How can I deconstruct that? Should I start with an easy game? But then I'll find many parts I don't understand as I follow the tutorial. Then I will start to do some research on those parts and I find that they are linked to other parts of computer science. This makes the process more and more complicated and at last, I will give up. This kind of giving up has made me hate myself so much. Can anyone help me with this?? I really need some help. Thanks, in advance...
This is so flipping TRUE, anyone can do this. Get your mind right and you can do anything like make $100k a month over and over again. People, success is 80% mind, 20% physical. Forget the 9 to 5, this what society tells you have to do but you don’t.Stop listening to this messed up world. Quit serving this f’d up society, the government controls the education system, college is a scam, health like flu shots, and so much more. Take control today, let me give you some tips
Thank you sooo much! You genious and fun! Now I'm just 20 hours away from doing so many cool things I always wanted to but never believed I could:)...and playing ukulele that catching dust in my storage room was one of them:))!
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
