From an early age, I noticed that there was rhythm in life, from the pep in one's step to the wink of an eye, everything we do and all things around us have a pace or a certain flow or rigidness. That pace could be that of the hare or the tortoise. It could mean soaring like an eagle or hovering like a humming bird. It all depended on the goal I had in mind. In order to get to where I wanted to go, I had to decide: was it best to put my head down and charge like a bull or dance the dance of a ballerina? Rhythm is truly an integral part of how we live our lives and how life surrounds us. Is it possible to enhance our own lives by borrowing the rhythmic cues from what surrounds us, or using sources that have seemingly no relation to the goal you have in mind? One common thread I have found in life is rhythm.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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.)
