My favorite top 9 TED talks – what about yours?
Today I´ll share with you my current top 9 TED Talks I´ve watched repeatedly.

Set your own “happy goals” at work
Goal setting is essential. Laura Garnett made a blog article on deliveringhappiness.com about “how to set “happy goals” at work“.

Fragile Plan vs Robust Plan
Derek Sivers made an article about “Making a plan” this summer. As the titel says it´s about the difference between a fragile and a robust plan.
Sivers starts his article with a private story when he was publishing 16 books about 16 countries. He decided to hire one write per country and all the details were up to them. He just gave a direction like “the book need sections on culture, government, business” and so on.
