I had a different idea for a post today, but as is my norm I started reading an article that changed my mind and direction, that led me to another article with a different concept that I needed to explore, and that led me to yet something completely different. Apparently, I never learned the fine art of concentration, I need to explore all sides and see what greater minds than I have come up with, regardless if the topic changed.
Having said all of that I keep coming back to Chimamanda Adichie: The danger of a single story that I talked about last November, and wanting to post it again.
Two TED talks – different but same. Hope you enjoy and get as much from both as I have. The first is under 5 minutes and the second is close to 20 minutes, but you can simply listen to her talk if you have other things to-do.
Raghava KK: Shake up your story
Chimamanda Adichie: The danger of a single story
In my post last November on this talk, I took the time to transcribe some parts and talked about my story, or indeed the lack thereof and how it impacted me. I reread that post the other day and realized that what I did not talk about, was how much it impacted me in my teen years while I was trying unsuccessfully to incorporate what I knew of nature side – with what I knew of my nurture side.
