Back to School Insights | Haters Gonna Hate TED

In career on August 21, 2013 at 3:42 pm

The TED backlash is real, or as Evgeny Morozov called it, “an insatiable kingpin of international meme laundering”–but don’t discount the idea factory too soon.  The primary advantage is that these storied Talks take less time that you spend on Facebook in the morning and give you a new source of career advice and ideas to stew about as you plan your next steps.

From the importance of persistence or “grit” from former seventh grade teacher Angela Lee Duckworth, econ prof Larry Smith on why you will fail to have a great career, or Margaret Heffernan on why disagreement is essential.

So disagree with them–hate them even, but they are pretty hard to ignore and can be a very useful tool in your professional arsenal.
