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.
In December’s Toronto Life, #1 international bestselling author Neil Pasricha talks about positive thinking during the holidays. His third book, The Book of (Holiday) Awesome, is out this month. Here’s a quote from Neil, on the importance of the workplace:
If I wasn’t going to an office every day, I’d be massively unproductive. I would quickly devolve into a caveman who didn’t shave, ate Chicken McNuggets, and wore track pants. I need a reason to get up in the morning and put on a shirt.
Lavin speaker Neil Pasricha is the man behind the 1000 Awesome Things Blog. He’s also the #1 international bestselling author of The Book of Awesome and The Book of (Even More) Awesome. He stopped by our Toronto office yesterday, bearing gifts. Okay, a box of Oreos. Still, they were awesome!
