If you want to understand more about this generation, a great book out there is by Tim Elmore called Generation iY.
Start your Monday off with a little magic! Marco Tempest uses technology to show how magic can work through the use of ipods/iphones and how deception plays into the factor of magic.
Have you ever been in a place where you give judgement on someone before you fully look into who they are, you simply look on the outside and judge? I am sure none of you have done that and I am in the minority (insert sarcasm)! Early on, I didn’t like Rick Warren. I can’t even tell you why I didn’t. I am not sure other than I was a dumb 20 something that knew nothing. But you know, that with age can tend to come with more maturity.
Well, most of the time it should.
Over the course of the last few years, I have grown to respect and look up to the wisdom that Rick Warren holds. I know he is far from perfect and quite frankly I don’t want to be around perfect people. Why? because they are not perfect and they think they are perfect. They are annoying.
I have yet to read Purpose Driven Life. Some day, I will need to read it to grasp the wisdom that Rick Warren has put into that book, but for now I glean from his twitter posts, on-line articles, and videos. Today’s TED Talk comes from Rick when he spoke at TED in 2006. This is an incredible message and I am pretty sure that he is the same way in this video as he is in his church, and you can see why Saddleback Church is doing some incredible things. As goes the leader, as goes the followers.
Innovative ideas come from somewhere, but not often where we think. I love in this video how Steven Johnson talks about the genesis of the GPS that many of you have in your cars. I say “you” simply because I haven’t gotten one yet!
