You are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon! Our November edition — themed Eat, Sleep, Fail, Repeat — is curated by TEDxTheHague:
"You hear it all the time: All successful people were once major failures. They missed their goals and had tremendous setbacks — multiple times. In some cases, for the majority of their lives. And yet, we remember them because of their achievements. How can we succeed at failing, and learn to move on?"
We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:
Michael "Vsauce" Stevens: Why do we ask questions?
Michael Stevens runs the YouTube channel Vsauce, with an entertaining approach to explaining seemingly ordinary, everyday phenomena. So far, he has tricked 400 million viewers into learning something about science.
Adam Grant: The surprising habits of original thinkers
How do creative people come up with great ideas? Organizational psychologist Adam Grant studies "originals": thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world. In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals — including embracing failure.
Mark Rober: The Super Mario Effect - Tricking Your Brain into Learning More
When 50,000 of Mark Rober's 3 million YouTube subscribers participated in a basic coding challenge, the data all pointed to what Rober has dubbed the Super Mario Effect. The YouTube star and former NASA engineer describes how it impacts the ways he helps (or tricks) his viewers into learning science, engineering, and design.
