Ideas worth spreading.
That’s the TED Talk tagline. It also sums up in just three words my entire belief system when it comes to the work I do: I’m all about sharing and spreading ideas that encourage and inspire growth, discovery, and change.
We’re all showing up online to share ideas that we believe are worth paying attention to. It may be through the content we share to market our services, or a lifestyle blog where we share personal insights and lessons learned, or podcasts and videos where we make space for our message and our purpose to come to life.
And it’s awesome. Honing our message, creating content that resonates and connects, and being brave enough to really put our best, most meaningful work out there is what I spend my days doing - in both my own journey and as a partner in crime in my clients journeys too.
Here’s the thing I’ve learned: sometimes we create around our best ideas, instead of honing in on what it is really want to say and share. We fill space with content that isn’t fully doing our message and our voice justice, and we keep ourselves small by staying in our comfort zones along the way.
So my question today for you is this: if you had to give a TED Talk tomorrow, what would it be about?
