Neil Pasricha can add another “awesome” thing to his Book of Awesome: having his TEDx talk ranked among the top 20 most popular of all time. His feel-good talk, called The Three A’s of Awesome, comes in at number 11 on the list with a whopping 1,455,980 views. Pasricha is in good company, with the likes Jane Fonda and popular human interactions specialist Brené Brown rounding out the list.
Using his trademark compilations of everyday things that bring extraordinary joy (like hitting a string of green lights in a row or having a blanket thrown on you before you fall asleep), Pasricha speaks to the importance of small pleasures in our often overwhelming world. We can use these happy, little events to live our lives to the fullest, says Pasricha—but only if we stop to savour them. Drawing from his massively popular blog, 1000 Awesome Things (which has been featured in media outlets such as CNN and The New Yorker) andhis international bestselling book, TheBook of Awesome, he delivers heartwarming keynotes on how to change your perspective on life. Further, he helps people in all industries and walks of life bring awesome principles to their day-to-day life, helping audiences embrace the awesome both at work and at home.
"Life is so great that we only get a tiny moment to enjoy everything we see. And that moment is right now. And that moment is counting down. And that moment is always, always fleeting."
