A TED Talk On Three Life Lessons.

My readers will recollect my seeing the movie Sully and writing about it and this has just come to my notice though it is quite old. This will take just a little more than five minutes. It is however mind blowing.

    2 songs immediately leap to mind – Live for Today and Don’t Worry – Be happy

    Unfortunately, I can honestly say I was an abject failure at his number one take away – and while I will admit that it is not open for discussion. en and honest streak has some limitatoions

    • Why I thought that I should share the talk is the thought that I had when I saw the movie Sully about what the passengers must have felt in the few minutes that it took for them to realise that they were close to death and the time that they were saved. I imagined what I would have felt had I been on that flight and came nowhere near what he says!

  2. I’m afraid there wasn’t anything new in it for me. Live a value-driven life. Commitment and practice.

    that is the first real account of a passenger on that flight that i’ve heard.
    i loved the simplicity of his message for such a frightening experience.
    and it’s so refreshing to hear a young dad say that his most important ‘job’ is being a good parent.
    thank you so much rummy.

  4. Like tammy j, I appreciated the simplicity of his message. It makes me realize that you don’t need flowery language to express the most powerful of thoughts! I’m at the age where I always think about how to be the best person I can be, I reflect on that each day, but it certainly never hurts to be reminded, especially in such a direct, personal way! Thank you, Ramana!

  5. great insight into what could happen, when you don’t expect it to…

    one of my network had a frightening experience just a few days ago…his flight was running along the run-way at Bangkok airport when suddenly the brakes were applied, very fast – plane of course stopped and returned to maintenance hangar, the passengers offloaded – the flight left much, much later and then calmly made it’s way to Germany…

    my take from the TED talk, is do the best you can to make sure you can continue your journey. Today: I had 2 trips planned, neither of them have been undertaken because the rain/wind would mean I wouldn’t ever managed to stay dry…(neither terribly VIP, both can be done another time)…

    • Very well thought out and written Cathy. Your story about your friend resonates with me as I once was in a flight that returned after about thirty minutes of flight and I saw the moon on the other side from where it was in the beginning. It later turned out that the plane flew back on one engine! The return flight was quite tense for me who was the only one who was aware of what was happening.
