Sharing knowledge from TEDx Brussels 2013

TedX Brussels28th of October 2013 was my first TEDx experience and I have to say it was a very inspiring one! With the theme “Do something out of nothing”, #TEDxBrussels 2013 brought on stage amazing speakers, all sharing great ideas.  The areas touched by the them were diverse, but they all have something in common: science. Be it education, youth unemployment, music, food, protecting animals, technology, they all proved that we live in a world that is constantly changing, evolving, and has more opportunities to offer than ever before!

3 things I learned while my plane was crashed

“I no longer want to postpone anything in life. That urgency, that purpose, has really changed my life.”

“I no longer try to be right; I choose to be happy.”

“I regretted the time I wasted on things that did not matter with people that matter.”

Ric Elias was sitting in seat 1D of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 on January 15, 2009 headed to Charlotte, North Carolina, when a flock of Canadian geese collided with the jet.

“When the pilot said, ‘Brace for impact,’ I knew my life was over,” said Elias, “But I was given a chance.”

Watch the short TED talk below to learn the 3 things and ask yourself what can you learn from his experience too.

stone jarLast week I got the chance to deliver an excellent training to almost 30 people from the Romanian Public Administration. It was great to talk to them and discover what the issues are in their organizations. The training was about Time Management and Stress Management.

I got the chance to apply myself Time Management techniques because we only had 9 hours available in 3 days and I had to focus on what’s important and do my best to help them practice during the training what they learned. We had fun, we learned a lot and we also relaaaaaaxed in the last day.

What did we cover?

I can do it!

Stop listening to what others think about what you can do!

They are only trying to limit you. They don’t do it on purpose. They think that they are protecting you from going out of your comfort zone and from getting hurt. But what they do is actually limiting.

If you feel that you can do it, just do it!

What does a good friend do for you?

Just a while ago I lost my motivation. Things were not so good with work, I was expecting different results even if I was doing the same thing all over again. I was not moving forward and my focus was only on the fact that I did not get those results. From my point of view, I had no learnings to take from the situation and the more I was focusing on the fact that I could not move forward, the more I felt bad and stuck. I was all over my head into the problem and I could not see anything outside!
