Sarah Susanka's "Not So Big" message has become a launch pad for a new dimension of understanding how we inhabit our homes, our planet and our lives. A thought leader and acclaimed architect, Susanka is the best-selling author of nine books that collectively weave together home and life design, revealing that a "Not So Big" attitude serves not only architectural aims, but life goals as well. Her books have sold well over one million copies.
Architect Sarah Susanka asks us to re:THINK life's possibilities -- and in doing so, opens us up to a potential feast In every moment.
We are often encouraged to follow our passion...our heart. But sometimes either that passion isn't clear, or the path toward it is obscured. Susanka reassures us that by simply being present to your bliss -- in every possible moment -- you're more likely to encounter that singular passion in your life. Just be present and completely engaged in whatever you're doing, and the banquet will unfold. A key is to look beyond the "filters" that we've all become accustomed to and accepting of.
Here she teaches us that beyond those filters lie powerful life lessons in simple moments -- if we are present to them. And if we are, "Life becomes a playground for your own growth."
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)
