Thanks to the comment posted by Scherezade in response to my previous Amazement, I followed links to TED -- stands for Technology, Education, Design -- and found a treasure trove of inspiration talks presented audiovisually. I am only too sure that I could spend the entire day being inspired, but the very first of these links will take you to a talk about the sort of reasons for which I will NOT be doing that ...
I've picked two of the three talks I linked to:
Don't Eat The Marshmallows ... Yet by Joachim de Posada
Are We In Control Of Our Own Decisions? by Dan Ariely.
