    What frogs in hot water can teach us about thinking again | Adam Grant

    Why are humans so slow to react to looming crises, like a forewarned pandemic or a warming planet? It's because we're reluctant to rethink, say organizational psychologist Adam Grant. From a near-disastrous hike on Panama's highest mountain to courageously joining his high school's diving team, Grant borrows examples from his own life to illustrate how tunnel vision around our goals, habits and identities can find us stuck on a narrow path. Drawing on his research, he shares counterintuitive insights on how to broaden your focus and remain open to opportunities for rethinking.

Attention

Excellent description of my sister
She developed her on following on the Internet
I am not sure of all the different terms used for the various platforms used
But it about killed her to get put into face book jail for spewing hate messages
This Ted Talk definitely afforded me an understanding of social media
But not range on all those find a friend. Make a friend. Fake a friend sites

Stay out of Politics

TED talks is slowly turning into VICE news.

Keep on the scientific and interesting topics, I don’t listen to TED for politics. Hundreds of other political podcasts I can go to for that.

Awesome

A lot of people stereotype Tedtalks to being something to listen or watch, but learn nothing at all. And that’s what I thought. Until about 3 months ago. Now I realize that these people’s life passions and success are being told through this “outreach.” It’s amazing and definitely worth a listen.
