Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think
When you hear something that inspires you, you want to share it with the world. Peter Diamandis presented a talk on abundance at Ted.com and really gives one pause to re-think where we are heading and inspires one to action. In a world where there are so many headlines in the news that proliferate the concept that life is getting worse, it is refreshing to hear another perspective from this true visionary. If you have not listened to Ted.com talks, I highly recommend checking the online talks.
Onstage at TED2012, Peter Diamandis makes a case for optimism — that we’ll invent, innovate and create ways to solve the challenges that loom over us. “I’m not saying we don’t have our set of problems; we surely do. But ultimately, we knock them down.”
