The previous presentation by Sir Ken Robinson is one of the most inspiring presentations that I know. So I was glad to find out that a new presentation by him was available online. Make sure to watch it!Here are some quotes to get you excited: "The problem for human beings is often not that we aim too high and fail, it's that we aim too low and succeed." "Finding your passion does change everything." "Being creative is the process of having original ideas that have value." "We need to be creative responsibly." "Most things that are obvious turn out not to be true." "People are only transformed if they are engaged." "Great education requires great teachers." "It's not about standardizing, it's about raising standards."

Great documentary. Several stories of people in California who are faced with great changes. They are using their creativity to deal with what´s happening.
Video that includes the talk "Maximizing creativity with brain wave training" from Global HR Forum 2009. The talk starts at about 3 minutes into the video, is the only english in the video and ends after 30 minutes. Admittedly, the talk is a little slow and technical but if you want to hear about the raw research that says meditation, biofeedback, etc helps creativity without the filters, this is the best way.
Here's a short overview of young people and their looks at life. See how they have been the ones who created change.

Afgelopen zaterdag mocht ik optreden tijdens het Slokdarmfestival in Veghel. Een cultureel en culinair 3-daags festival met zeer veel uiteenlopende acts en een gemoedelijke sfeer. Ik stond om 20:30 op het programma en mocht 45 minuten optreden. Speciaal voor...
Naar aanleiding van de Wisdom trailer kocht ik het bijbehorende boek. En dan ineens zie ik vandaag op het internet een lezing voorbij komen van de maker, Andrew Zuckerman. "In this 99% talk, Andrew Zuckerman argues that curiosity is an essential...
Nog niet zo lang geleden kwam ik bovenstaande uitspraak tegen. En hij bleef hangen. Want als je ongemak omarmt dan groei je snel. Je plaatst jezelf dan steeds makkelijker in nieuwe situaties. Het deed me denken aan deze video van Eckhart Tolle waarin...

Iedereen kan nu een boek schrijven en uitgeven, een film maken en publiceren, een lied schrijven en verkopen... Creativiteit grijpt om zich heen. Het verandert alles. De film PressPausePlay laat dit zien. (via swissmiss)
Creative people often suffer from depression due to creativity blocks. Here's an interview on this topic with Eric Maisel, who wrote The Van Gogh Blues - The Creative Person's Path Through Depression.
Losing your job can be the best thing that ever happens to you. "More than 70,000 advertising professionals have lost their jobs in this Great Recession. Lemonade is about what happens when people who were once paid to be creative in advertising are forced to be creative with their own lives."

The story To find the path to long life and health, Dan Buettner and team study the world's "Blue Zones," communities whose elders live with vim and vigor to record-setting age. At TEDxTC, he shares the 9 common diet and lifestyle habits that keep them spry past age 100. Why this story inspired me The presentation shows that having a purpose in your life and living life in a community (friends, family) are of big influence on your chances of reaching a high age while remaining healthy. It's also a good idea to create a life in which the activities that you do demand you to move your body. What I hope sharing this story will lead to I hope that more people will see the importance of creating opportunities for older people to stay active in a way that let's them know they're still part of society after they retire. The documentary Young At Heart is a great example of the effect that such initiatives can have.
Okay, it would've been great if all these short clips were put in one video. Still, the findings on children and play are certainly worth watching. They may even cause you to review your parenting skills.
