The Do Lectures



I recently read the business bestseller 'The 4-hour working week' by Timothy Ferris. I confess, I sped read it, skimming through the chapters. Given Timothy's philosophy, I reckoned he wouldn't mind - as long as I had bought it. Some bits were good. Some not so. But I liked him. In particular, I liked how he talked about his failures.

The above video is thought-provoking, and not just a plug for his book.

Even if Mr Ferris is not your thing, it is worth poping over to the The Do Lectures. They've gathered a handful of speakers in one place, under the theme of inspiring us to do something. You'll get to see John Grant and Russell Davies, among others.

I did not even realize such series existed. This is great news, and I am sure to find this series to have a better idea of the background of this excellent series.
