TED Talks vs. New Year's Resolutions

Well, it's that time of year again when we see lots of year-end lists of best this and worst that. Along with these always comes lots of introspection of what was and consideration of what is to come.

For many, this takes the form of a New Year's Resolutions list. A noble effort that rarely extends beyond February or March.

I thought I'd take a different approach and would love your collaboration and feedback on it. I've created and embedded below a list of Unforgettable TED Talks. On this list you can vote on those included and also add ones you think are missing.

Instead of focusing on a list of resolutions, why not just sit back and enjoy some inspiring, challenging and mind-stretching talks? And how about we keep this list handy whenever we feel we're struggling and overwhelmed in 2013?

As a lifelong learner, I believe increased self-awareness is possibly the best goal to have and strive for in life. Once your self-awareness grows, maybe those resolutions you've already written down will stick. Or maybe that list won't need to be as long as it is. Watch these TED Talks videos and learn, consider and grow. Then use the power of Social Media to help others do the same.

Next year can be better. But that's up to you...
