This is a TEDx Tucson talk from last year. I just came across it today. I am sharing it because I really liked his message, and I am hoping it will help me and or someone else if I share it.
This is Stephen Duneier, I have no idea who he is, or was before I watched his talk. I still don't know who he is, but I am going to learn more about him. The description on the video is below.
"How you define Stephen Duneier depends on how you came to know him. Some define him as an expert institutional investor, while others know him as a large scale installation artist, avid outdoorsman, professor, decision strategist, coach, business leader, mindfulness extremist, author, speaker, daredevil or Guinness world record holder."
He said he was a consistent C to C- student from Kindergarten through his Sophomore year in college. He always had the same comments on his grade card about being smart but not able to settle down. One day instead of trying to settle down he approached his studies differently and found ways to solve problems by breaking the tasks down to their simplest parts.
The speech below is really interesting and I think it can help. I know I have a lot of problems that I feel like I can't solve.
