5 TED talks for Post-Spring Break Motivation

Alright, so you binged on Netflix, slept in, caught up with family or friends, gone for a hike, saw a movie or maybe you just kept working - life doesn’t always stop. Spring Break is over and you are back on the grind! 

There are 8 weeks left in the semester, needing some motivation for these next few weeks? Check out these TED Talks to get charged and tackle the rest of Spring semester.

“5 ways to lead in an era of constant change”
Who says change needs to be hard? Organizational change expert Jim Hemerling thinks adapting your business in today's constantly-evolving world can be invigorating instead of exhausting. He outlines five imperatives, centered around putting people first, for turning company reorganization into an empowering, energizing task for all.

“Living beyond limits”
When she was 19, Amy Purdy lost both her legs below the knee. And now ... she's a pro snowboarder (and a killer competitor on "Dancing with the Stars"!). In this powerful talk, she shows us how to draw inspiration from life's obstacles.

“My year of saying yes to everything”
Shonda Rhimes, the titan behind Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder, is responsible for some 70 hours of television per season, and she loves to work. "When I am hard at work, when I am deep in it, there is no other feeling," she says. She has a name for this feeling: The hum. The hum is a drug, the hum is music, the hum is God's whisper in her ear. But what happens when it stops? Is she anything besides the hum? In this moving talk, join Rhimes on a journey through her "year of yes" and find out how she got her hum back.

“The surprising habits of original thinkers”
How do creative people come up with great ideas? Organizational psychologist Adam Grant studies "originals": thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world. In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals — including embracing failure. "The greatest originals are the ones who fail the most, because they're the ones who try the most," Grant says. "You need a lot of bad ideas in order to get a few good ones."

“How to make stress your friend”
Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

3 reasons joining the UNM innovationAcademy will help you find a job!

3 reasons joining the UNM innovationAcademy will help you find a job

1.    Becoming involved in the innovationAcademy (iA) means you will be part of a diverse group of students representing 39 majors, and be exposed to new and exciting ideas! iA integrates programs and learning environments throughout the university to create a critical mass of people with necessary skills and new ideas that will make a significant impact on our economy and community.

2.    You will gain “soft” skills that aren’t typically learned in classroom settings. Things like, communication, self-motivation, and organization. These are the skills employers are looking for! Wherever you work, whether in someone else’s business, a nonprofit, a government agency, or on your own, you need to be good at critical and analytical thinking, solving problems, planning and organizing projects, collaborating, and communicating with people.  Entrepreneurial doesn’t just apply to people who want to start their own companies but actually describes anyone who can successfully organize and manage any project, plan or task with energy, drive, and creativity.

3.    Enlarge your circle of potential employer connections! Not only will you be better at talking to traditional employers at internship and job fairs, you will meet additional employers through iA. We host internship fairs and post open internship positions for local start-ups and other small (but super cool) businesses.

If you want to learn more about getting involved in iA, sign up here:  http://innovationacademy.unm.edu/apply.html  for our monthly newsletter. We have guest speakers, special events, fairs and networking that will offer you unique opportunities to collaborate with other students and faculty members.

-Don’t worry, it says “Apply” – but you are ONLY signing up for the listserv, you will not actually be added to iA until you begin to follow the iA Scholars steps-
