This week’s TED Talk clip is: Tim Ferriss: Smash fear, learn anything
Clip length: 16 mins 21 secs
NB: If you are watching in an environment (ie some work places) where individuals are super sensitive to the use of language you may want to know that there is one short quote in this talk that contains the F word. It’s used in context and will probably pass most people by, I mention this only so if you feel it’s appropriate you don’t play it at full volume where unintended offence may be caused!

“The greatest gift we can receive is to not be scared of our own experience.”
“Curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will.”
