The Basic Building Blocks of the Universe Particle physics teaches that the basic physical building blocks […]

How to Stay Calm when Giving a TED Talk (or Doing Anything High-Pressure)

I couldn’t sleep the night before my TED talk. I woke up around 4am and floated in and out of sleep for the rest of the night. My mind was whirling. I tried meditation, yoga, tea, took a bath. It wasn’t happening. I was slotted to speak second-to-last the next day, at nearly 6pm. It […]

Why Some of Us Don’t Have One True Calling (Our TED Talk is Live!)

Last month I had the honour of speaking at TEDxBend. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.

A Personal Note from Emilie Before the TED Flurry Hits

A Personal Note from Emilie Before the TED Flurry Hits

There’s this awkward thing that happens when you host a big time-sensitive project (like a sale) on your site.

How Do You Know when it’s Time to Pursue a New Interest?

I was recently in a situation that you’re probably familiar with. I’d just introduced someone to the concept of multipotentiality for the first time and she was looking at me in disbelief. The questions started coming: “So how do you…?”, “What happens when…?”, “Why do you..?” So I began trying to help her make sense of what I was saying. And then […]
