Connected, but alone? – TED talk by: SherryTurkle

[UPDATE: I wrote more in detail about this]

Every time I go to places like restaurants, airports, etc. I see more and more this: people are pshically together but mentally somewhere else.

I am collecting pictures I’ve been taking with my iPhone.  I do love technology (still), but this fenomena that I see more and more where people is together but not together is more and more in my mind and makes me wonder if we are gradually loosing the connection of heart to heart when we can have the opportunity to be at the same place, at the same time.

Do you think this is just another day in your life? – Louie Schwartzberg: Gratitude [TED Video]

These are my favorite parts:

  • [1:52] – “When we see our souls in nature it also connects us to every one of us because it’s clear that it’s all connected in one…”
  • [2:36] – “God is a personal journey we all want to be on, to be inspired, to feel that we are connected to a universe that celebrates life…” 
  • [3:18] – “Nature’s beauty is a gift that cultivates appreciation and gratitude…”
  • [4:50] – “Do you think this is just another day in your life? It’s not just another day, it’s the one day that is given to you, today! … it’s given to you, it’s a gift.  It’s the only gift that you have right now, and the only appropiate response is gratefulness.”
  • [7:08] – “Look at the faces of the poople that we meet, each one has an incredible story behind their face…”
  • [9:16] – “Let the gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you.  Then, it will really be, a good day!”

Your own mental attitude is your real boss


Napoleon Hill's Thought For The Day

While your time and your labor may be subject to the demands of your employer and others, your mind is the one thing that cannot be controlled by anyone but you. The thoughts you think, your attitude toward your job, and what you are willing to give in exchange for the compensation you are paid are entirely up to you. It is up to you to determine whether you will be a slave to a negative attitude or the master of a positive one. Your attitude, your only master in life, is entirely within your control. When you control your attitude toward events, you control the eventual implication of those events.
