TED Talk 30th November 2017

This week’s TED Talk clip is from an independent TEDx event:
The mouse that roars | Karen Williams | TEDxChichester

I suspect many coaches and those wanting to start out on the path to be a coach will relate to Karen’s story:

Long time no post

Long time no blog

A message from me,

So for those who have been following for a while you’ll have noticed that there hasn’t been any posts for some time. For a bit I wasn’t certain if I would keep the blog going because of practical logistical reasons.

I have an eye condition that when it flares up means that they get really, really sensitive to any light and one of the impacts this has is that it makes any computer/screen use impossible. (I know people can be squeamish about eye issue descriptions so don’t worry I’m not going to go into medical details.)

Earlier this year I had one of the worst and pre-longed flare ups I’ve experienced, and it took a lot longer for me to get back to a regular routine and back to full computer use. Previous attacks had only kept me off doing any computer work for a handful of days and I had plans in place for that – now I had to figure out if I could still run the blog in a way I wanted if I was literally out of action for much longer.

Having put some thought into it I’ve now put many things in place that hopefully that I won’t need to use but if I do will keep the blog ticking over without my sight being needed. I’m not promising that it will never go dark again – I don’t have the power to definitely foresee the future all I can say is that in theory it’s less likely to be impacted.

What does this all mean for you, the reader? I hope it will mean that you will start to see posts again that will be of interest to coaches. Guest posts will be starting again on Friday and I already have some TED talks I’ve spotted to share – I’ll post the first one later today, but I’m aware there’ll be stuff I’ve missed so what would you like to see and share?

What TED and TEDx talks have you seen recently that you think would appeal to other coaches?

Have you an idea for a guest post that you think would be perfect for an audience of coaches?

What would you like to see more posts about?
