    It amazes me at how some people still think Tai isn’t a blessing to society. If you think he’s a scam... you’re shallow or weak minded

      This ted talk is like a good book, you always come from time to time to see it again :)

        Not about reading books but still worth the time!

          My english teacher used to say 'read,read and all the time read with all your heart' in due course of time i learnt that she right. I always knew she was right. A book and a mentor can give you decades of knowledge if you are willing to take it. I am happy because i learnt this before i will be 14

            i have a feeling that this video only has around 300k views and 55k likes (people can buy likes and views nowadays). he comes off as a con artist to me, but his advice to read more is, at least, legit.

              How would one go about finding a mentor? As I do not know where to find a mentor, I suppose I will have to keep reading books. I am trying to get into the habit of reading several books rather than spend my time playing video games because they are a time sink. Also surrounding yourself following the 33% rule is difficult for those of us who are limited by confounding factors. In theory it is a nice approach in life; however, I seem to have no similar interests with people who are smarter than me due to differences in backgrounds.

                      Sir what you are saying is a real beautiful dream. However, to achieve what you're preaching is a nightmare. Please don't mislead the public by this theory. Thank you.

                              Life is all about you and not at all about you
                              Now, that's two opposing thoughts and yet both of them are true
                              How can you experience everything you choose to do
                              While observing the experience you're having from a higher view
                              See, it's the question, not the answer, that's the higher view
                              Otherwise, you couldn't differentiate between the two
                              Awareness? But of who?
                              You think you hurt me, but I promise I was letting you
                              They say we're all one, but where have we been headed to
                              I'd rather die free than have to live inside a petting zoo
                              I am the journey that I'm getting to

                                Unless you are a speed reader, most people cannot read a book a day unless they are not working, so an unemployed person reading one book a day will never get a job and will never succeed at anything but boy is he getting smart?

                                    If a book takes you a day to read.
                                    1. That is either a children's book, a picture book, or some other nonsense.
                                    2. You're skimming right through the book and patting yourself on the back for *Reading* it.
                                    3. It's not a book that's challenging for your level. Good books should provoke thought and you shouldn't fly right through them, (unless it's just light reading for some entertain books).
                                    4. For the inevitable person who does manage to read 100-400 page books a day, please pat yourself on the back because i certainty dont care to know. (But feel free to comment and let me know if it improves your ego.)
                                    5. This TedTalk is a joke.

                                          I do believe reading is good for you but don't read to regurgitate the information. It should force you to develop a deep thinking philosophy

                                                              There was a movie critic (in NY) who liked movies I despised, and he didn't like movies that I have enjoyed, Tai is the same. I listen to him and do the opposite. LoL I stopped watching TED a while ago (my i Q was deminishing/decreasing, when I listened to subjects I value dearly, from unqualified MoFo s ) I can't believe TED put him on. I'm never watching TED again. He's full of s***,,,💩 no substance , don't do anything he talks about.
