TEDxPortofSpain·01 · 11 · 14·Doing, Undoing, Redoing

All of life happens out of the act of doing. For TEDxPortofSpain 2014, we wanted to emphasize the art of doing. What are you doing? What are they doing? How are we doing? How is she doing that? Why are they doing that? Who is doing what, and why?

The Gift of Failure

by Candice De Sormeaux “If you are not making mistakes, you’re not taking enough risks,” – Debbie Millman Taking risks, whether calculated or not, isn’t easy.
