Imagination

As Einstein said:

Watch this Ted talk until the end (I posted it on a Sunday to make sure you have time to watch it). It is one of the oldest but also one of my favorites

The Beatles

I came across this  chart and found it very funny:

Song of the day: Hey Jude- The Beatles (obviously)

Random fact about the song: at minute 2:58, Paul McCartney can be faintly heard saying “oh, f****ing hell” after he made a mistake during the recording of the song!

Beatles quote: “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make”.

Have a nice day!

The two guys in the below video are definitely NOT scared of looking stupid, so here it is, it is weird, Funny and just a little bit disturbing 🙂

Can you imagine how much time they spent trying to coordinate the moves?

 

Another thing that will definitely make you laugh:

Dance it Out

Last month, I went to the celebration of an Indian Festival (Dusseira) and during the night, our Indian friends taught us some Indian dance steps.

And there we were, in a circle, 30 people from all around the world, performing Indian dances, each in his own particular way and style.

Later that night, we went to a club and actually danced Indian the whole night. I found it amazing how the music brought us together and taught us so much about the Indian culture.

To me personally, Dancing is much more than a sport. It’s a means of expression and catharsis, and a must in our lives.

Baz Luhrmann says in his “Wear Sunscreen” song:

“Dance. Even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.”

Here’s his immortal inspiring talk:

And to end today’s post, I’m sharing with you the below video… It is somehow soothing but at the same time a bit sad.. So here’s to all of you who have experienced this “dance”:

Fathers

Fathers can be tough. But deep deep down, trust me, they are as sensitive as a little girl.

So today I’m sharing two heart-warming ads as a tribute to them and to everything they do for us. In the backstage.

To my Dad,

Dare

The first thing you learn in entrepreneurship classes is to have the guts to take risks, to grab the opportunity as soon as it arises (if you believe in it of course).

Here’s a great TED talk about making things happen, with a mind-blowing story behind it.

And although it’s an ad for clothes, I love the below video. It illustrates well today’s post :

So go ahead, do whatever you have been putting off,

I dare you.
