What's your TED habit?
I also love this idea. Besides my daily visit during lunch, TED is one of my go-to procrastination/brainstorming tools. It's fun to wallow in for awhile before starting a project. I feel like it helps me to think outside of the box, so to speak. I also have a few favorites that I watch over and over when I need a pick-me-up. I love it when I get an opportunity to watch a TED talk with someone else, but it seems that not everyone is as enthusiastic about the talks as I am. I would love to hook up with some people in the Bay Area that do this TED@Home piece!

What is your greatest passion and how have you been able to develop and sustain it?
I agree with Thomas. I am currently working on scheduling more thinking and writing time. Life is busy and it will take over your time, if you let it. You have to schedule it in. That time has to be as important for you to keep as an important meeting would be. Lately, I have literally been scheduling this time in my planner. When I have a definite start and stop time, it makes it less overwhelming. In this way, I can eliminate some of the guilt/anxiety that comes with living in a work-centric culture.
