Dear SuN friends,

This week we will navigate you though three of our favourite TEDx talks. Enjoy the show! :) 

TED is a nonprofit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.




1. How Great Leaders Inspire Action | Simon Sinek

In this video Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?"  His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers -- and as a counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling.


2. Inside the Mind of a Master Procrastinator | Tim Urban

Tim Urban, celebrated blogger and Thinking Person’s cartoonist knows that procrastination doesn't make sense, but he's never been able to shake his habit of waiting until the last minute to get things done. In this hilarious and insightful talk, Urban takes us on a journey through YouTube binges, Wikipedia rabbit holes and bouts of staring out the window — and encourages us to think harder about what we're really procrastinating on, before we run out of time.   


3. The mind behind Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity ... | Elon Musk

Entrepreneur Elon Musk is a man with many plans. The founder of PayPal, Tesla Motors and SpaceX sits down with TED curator Chris Anderson to share details about his projects, which include a mass-marketed electric car, a solar energy leasing company and a fully reusable rocket.


Stay tuned for more interesting SuN TOP 3 lists every week!


Yours,

SuN Team :)
