Inspiration: Benjamin Zander


While having a cocktail with a TEDster friend of mine, I was reintroduced to my love of Benjamin Zander’s TED Talk about classical music.  Zander is such a perfect example of passion, dynamism, and joy.  I asked myself, “What makes me feel the same way Zander feels during this TED Talk?” I narrowed down my greatest passions in the world to a list of five:

  1. Volunteering for a cause I feel is worthy
  2. Leading a group of people to success
  3. Creating (especially writing, crafting speeches, making visual presentations)
  4. Presenting in front of an audience in order to share something I love
  5. Literature (my favorites are Cormac McCarthy, Philip Roth, James Joyce)
What are your five greatest passions?
