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 lie that if you work hard you'll get somewhere is the biggest lie people have been told. The world is full of hardworking people who will get nowhere.

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.

It's cool to finally find a ted talk that is not motivational but instead informs us that we will not have good carreers.

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.

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

Paul Mayer (10 месяцев назад)
This guy has risked comparatively little, and has no problem telling others to risk everything. For those of you who may be curious, he is an economics professor at one of the world's leading technology research institutions, the University of Waterloo - home of Blackberry. He has a comfortable perch in academia, and get to throw money at promising startups he catches wind of. His salary is, in large part, paid for by the government subsidization of post-secondary institutions, which are, in turn, funded by the tax dollars of... you guessed it, working people. I'd like to see this guy roll up his sleeves and start a business of his own.

Так и кушать. Такие мысли посещают всех людей, которые пробуют чему-то научится либо достигнуть чего-то. Страх того, что ты пропустишь существование мимо, пытаясь достигнуть чего-то, с вероятностью в итоге издержать все это колоссальное пора в пустую в случае беды. Банальная правда, чтоб быть наилучшим в чем-то, необходимо отзывть этому все пора - чем больше отдаешь времени, тем ты лучше в этом, а если хочешь быть прям супер-пупер - то придется поступиться полностью всем временем. Человек какой уделяет чуток больше времени на что-то, чем ты, априори стает наилучшим спецом, а отсюда и карьера у него лучше. А истина в том, что покамест мы об этом размышляем, другие берут и делают. Если хочешь достигнуть чего-то, ты не будешь раздумывать, а что если. Поэтому он и гласит, что у всех вас не выйдет выдающейся карьеры, поэтому что вы слушаете его, заместо того, чтоб мастерить. Понимаете? Ахахаха. Я одинешенек из вас, однако я верю, что это можно поправить. Начните с малого. Если бы вы издержали 15 минут собственного времени на дело каким-то делом, заместо того, чтоб взвешивать свое убожество - вы бы прогрессировали в экспоненциальной скорости, а это итого только 15 минут никчемного самобичевания. С иной стороны вы развиваете мышление, однако этак же вы развили бы мышление занимаясь другим делом, лишь оно бы было более проф и узкоспециализированным на втором фоне. Если фоном находить развитие мышление, то в нашем случае мы развиваем мышление, а на втором месте у нас самобичевание, а не что-то стоящее. Потратьте 15 минут на что-то стоящее, а я пойду еще видосиков посмотрю. Спасибо

Unless you start working on it. Don't let the fear of the future, of the consequences that didn't happened yet shackle you. Its only regrets and regrets that follows if simply say later, a little later. I have been through it even though I am only 24.. Now I know where I made the mistakes, its time to move on.

This is true, but there are flaws in the argument. For example, and sorry for the musicians out there, but when you pursue your  joy of music and end up down the road in your 40s as a worn out singer who makes 500 bucks a month and your wife just got a disease because she works 60 hours a week and one of your children needs a math tutor... you get the point.. Historically in countries like Romania, you had miners who were very creative and they were awesome at construction but the demand in the market was for mining.. so this is what men did. Now you ask them if they had unfulfilling lives... not at all.. they all had hobbies and time for them, multiple homes... Do I believe we have talents and strengths as humans, absolutely yes! However, HOWEVER, you have to cater your skills to marketable positions and ALSO have a life outside of work. Even someone who loves what they do at work... It is still work at the end of the day and there will most likely be things you value greater that are outside of your work.
