All those ebook, talks, programs, and more.
Well, here is some good news for you.
Now you can learn the secrets of success in 3 minutes, thanks to this TED talk by author, Richard St.John.
Inspired by a question from a high school student on a flight, he decided to roll up his sleeves and really find out what successful people had in common.
In fact, he spent 10 years on this project and interviewed 500 extraordinary people. He then distilled everything into a talk he could give at high schools. In other words, after 10 years he found himself able to answer the question he was asked on that flight.
His next challenge was to distil that talk into 3 minutes. As you’ll see in the video below, he has to talk fast and go through his slides at lightning speed.
And yes, it would be understandable to dismiss “success in 3 minutes” as a gimmick.
But not so fast.
First, I believe he is right in his identification of the 8 key success factors.
Secondly, it makes sense sometimes to pay attention to the “executive summary” of a topic. When you read an entire book or watch a 60-minute video, it’s easy for the core learning points to drown in all the details.
Look at the bare bones of a lesson and you may see it more clearly.
Enjoy the video.
