Notes #01: Book – Talk Like TED: The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds

Started reading “Talk Like TED – The 9 Public-Speaking Secrets of the World’s Top Minds” by Carmine Gallo.

The first secret is to have passion. On page 18, Gallo says:

The popular TED speakers share something in common with the most engaging engaging communicators in any field – a passion, an obsession they must share with others.

The most popular speakers don’t have a job. They have a passion, an obsession, a vocation, but not a job.

Carmine offers another way to ask “What are you passionate about”. Ask “What makes your heart sing?”

He says:

A passion is something that is intensely meaningful and core to your identity.

A passion will impact your daily activities and profession – and, of course,  your TED Talk!
