TED continues to spread ideas and help us all be better critical thinkers. Watching, listening and talking about TED Talks is a popular pastime for many in the CN&CO community. We visit TED.com regularly to clear our heads, have a laugh, learn or get inspired. TED Talks open our minds, spark new ways of thinking and can lead to some very interesting conversations and business opportunities. Each week we pick a favourite and publish it on a Tuesday, because we like how “TED Talk Tuesday” sounds. It’s also a way that the CN&CO team play their part on spreading ideas and helping to make the world a better place.

It’s that time of year when many people set new goals or try, again, to achieve those new year’s resolutions. If there is there something you’ve always meant to do, wanted to do, but just … haven’t? In this talk – watched over 13 million times – Matt Cutts suggests: Try it for 30 days.

A short, lighthearted talk offering a neat way to think about setting and achieving goals (as Carel tries sober Janaury for the first time and aims to get back in to shape, no guessing who chose this talk … not so sure he’ll get to look like the fitness models above though?!)
