With all the smart things we learn fred TED talks, does it ever make you wonder that...

I've seen countless TED Talks and more than once having been left with a feeling of "I must do something productive and creative" afterwards, only to never act on it.

Why is that. Is it because I can't replicate what I see or learn in the talks? Is it lack of easy acces to a local community with the same passions? What is it?

What happens afterwards when you watch a TED Talk?

    Dec 28 2013: What happens afterwards when you watch a TED Talk?

    I mostly come to TED to learn something. Through TED I could learn all sorts new things I wouldn't access otherwise, because they are distant topic for me, new invention, or I just hadn't been trying harder. So after watching a TED Talk, I mostly feel enriched, that I've learned something new, as if I just gained extra ammunition in life - somewhat. Hopefully, I'd been using those knowledge in everything I do in life.

    I think we all contribute in a different way. We can't all be inventors, doctors, architects, etc. A musician, a statesman, even a scavenger contribute to society in their own unique way. I think the best way to contribute is to use your gift and talent - whatever that may be - to improve the way we're living. And the scale is different for each of us -- some people have a wider outreach that passes national borders, some of us have the outreach across one company, some within one family. But it all starts with one person: our self :)
