This year’s TEDx Conference was about Identity, what it means to be someone, how we are identified and how we identify ourselves. My good friend Dave Dame was an invited speaker, so it was a great opportunity to attend a conference I had always wanted to go to and to support a friend and his talk.
Overall the conference was good, with the best talks being from Dave and from Dr. Euginia Duodu. Both were engaging and interesting, however Dave’s was the only one that provided an action plan for moving forward.
When you first look at this poster you think “Yes, that guy IS smarter than the others!”, but then everything the responder says is true.
Knowing the goal and why we are trying to get there is the most important part of any job. Getting to the finish line fast, or easiest, is not always the way that is the best for the long term. There is no shortcut to learning the piano, no way to become an expert in any field without actually putting in the effort.
To me, the author of the critique is the real one that is working intelligently.
