Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel: http://bit.ly/1FAg8hB Throughout his three-decade career here at the University of Waterloo, Larry Smith has inspired legions of students to take up the mantle of economics with his passionate and homespun tales of economic wizardry. A renowned story-teller, teacher and youth leadership champion, Larry has also coached and mentored countless numbers of students on start-up business management and career development strategies. Having taught introductory microeconomics, macroeconomics and entrepreneurship classes, he recently celebrated assigning his 29,000th grade earlier this year. Recipient of the Distinguished Teacher Award, Larry has also coached several of his former students to help them position and develop their businesses, the most famous of which is Research in Motion (RIM), maker of the revolutionary BlackBerry wireless mobile smartphone. Larry also sits on the advisory panels of start-ups to provide his guidance on financing and negotiation with investors and venture capitalists. http://www.tedxuw.com/speakers/larry-smith/ --- 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)

The most thought-provoking speech!
Rose (16 дней назад)
I think the most thought provoking line I took from this was that parents don't and can't tell their children to follow their dreams because they didn't either.
Swagoto Roy (18 дней назад)
One of the best short talks. Most of us fail due to the fear of failure and thinking about future consequences which itself is uncertain! The key is to have a versatile career and a passionate heart! Yes we fail and we rise!

If you think you'll get to have a carrier where you get to invent velcro... I've got some bad news for you.

Maybe this advice works for some but I can’t help but feel like this is terrible for most people. Passion is a feeling. Feelings change. Should you really base your entire life based on something as fleeting as a feeling? I’ll pass.

+Nav Pat not entirely accurate, he said nothing big compared to warp-drive!
Nav Pat (1 месяц назад)
+jamotide Strategie und so oh I get what he's saying. But he, like you, made inventing velcro look like it was nothing big
jamotide Strategie und so (1 месяц назад)
+Nav Pat just trying to explain the point the speaker was making
Nav Pat (1 месяц назад)
+jamotide Strategie und so you're saying those things like they're, again, a small feat. Climbing Everest is nearly impossible for the average individual. And getting most of the world to recognize a dance move requires so much

Keep in mind kiddies, when you're on your death-bed it won't be your accomplishments that fulfill you, but the relationships you make whilst making those accomplishments. Never forget to be a human.

I'm just 6 minutes into the video and couldn't stop myself from writing that this is one of the best ted talks i have ever watched. That guy just rocked the stage.

Passion/Interest.. It's not easy to find a job you can live from and that you're passionate about.. if it was, people wouldn't even hesitate to follow this advice. Some people say "do what makes you happy", others say "do what gives you safety".. you know, on the internet there is so many people with different opinions but in the end you should know for yourself.
Filip Kopecký (6 месяцев назад)
It's cool to finally find a ted talk that is not motivational but instead informs us that we will not have good carreers.

Best ted talk i ever listin

I’ve been watching this for years. Yes, for years, It really is hard to change. Always motivating me but I’m too scared of losing I’ve done so far. Wish I had courage to pursuit my passion.

"I had a dream once, too, kid. But, then, you were born." Another excuse. Don't have children, if you're not living the life you want!
Summer is on Thursday (7 месяцев назад)
I'm 47 and I'm sure my luck's ran out. It ran out a couple of weeks ago and that's that 😕
hulagan808 (1 месяц назад)
Summer is on Thursday so here it is six months later. Still out of luck? I'm at the bottom but I'm looking to come up. So I came up with a legal plan that's going to either make me rich or remain poor. Last year, I didn't even have a clue that this is where I'd be. So yah never know.

First of all, he really really resonates with some of us who really have something we are passionate about and want to live a life with a purpose/adventure. However, this is given that we have the sufficient financial support (or found a way to side hustle) to make it happen. It’s easier said than done, and is a process rather than overnight thing, with lots of ups and downs along the way. At the end of the day, I’d rather fail having tried than live in regret of ‘what ifs’.... But..... I’ve realized there are genuinely people out there who’s only passion is to enjoy life...raise a family and afford to go on vacation. That’s fine too. I can’t imagine myself living ‘normal’ life, but I respect their views and ideals. There’s no point saying your way of living is the ‘best’ way. Everyone’s different with different circumstances, but whatever you do, don’t limit yourself. If you live in a Western country, dont ever say you don’t have a choice. You always did and always will, maybe not as much as more privileged folks, but you can start by making the best of what you do have control over. Eventually you’ll gain more freedom to make more choices as you grow. That’s my 2 cents.

Velcro is awesome and enriches my life in a practical way: It makes cables manageable. As for warp drive, until we fix ourselves warp-drive will merely spread the disease which is this man's empty bitterness to the stars. War and slavery on a galactic scale will be the result. And who is this guy anyway? As an economist has he solved mankind's woes? No, but he has a good career. Those who cannot do should not teach, and Larry should stick to economics. Soul-crushing jobs are the result of an empty soul, and no amount of accomplishment will fix this. If Larry conducts his personal life as he speaks to a crowd, he won't be missed. But the empty will pump him up. He might even get a library named after him. To not do so would make them look at themselves. The horror... The atom bomb was a world-changing accomplishment. Are things better? I for one wish to die missed by those that love me, and have them miss me because I will no longer be there to enrich their lives. If my life makes those around me treat others better, I have won. ...and in the meantime there is everything right about making a mound of cash doing what you are good at. End of retort.

I want to do a job that I love but it involves 75% travel that will affect my wife/kid. I got two chances for that job but did not pursue. Not sure what to do
Anon (10 месяцев назад)
There are no more good careers, it's a matter of luck, I am not a genius but my professors beaten that idea out of my head, I am not weird through every body knows that people who pursue their passions are somewhat obsessive a little strange a fine line between madness and genius , I am nice I am normal and nice normal people don't have passion , I will work really hard and get a great career, I don't have a passion I have an interest, I don't need many passions, I value human relationships more than accomplishment I want to be a great friend a great spouse a great parent and I will not sacrifice them on the altar of great accomplishment I am hero no matter what it's appropriate to use children as a human shield, I had a dream once too but I was afraid to pursue it or and then you were born not go for it kid just like I did, I am afraid to pursue my passion I am afraid to look ridiculous am afraid to try am a afraid to fail, it's not a package great parent spouse carrier friend I can be any one without the other, unless if only I had

I wanted to be a great soldier, strong fearless respected. I lost my legs in a war. Am I a hero, who tried so hard? The great sacrifice is the path to greatness. Come on, do you want to live forever? Starship Troopers. Unless...you don't mind bitterness.
