Not that this is specific to GTD, this TED Talk, delivered by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a brain scientist, details her very personal experience with brain trauma as she had a ringside seat to her very own stroke. This is a powerful presentation with an important message – well worth the 20 minutes to view. Enjoy.

    I‚Äôve been recommending ‚ÄúMy Stroke of Insight‚Äù to everyone I know. It‚Äôs the best book I‚Äôve read all year! You can get Jill’s book from Amazon for a good discount.

    I read “My Stroke of Insight” in one sitting – I couldn’t put it down. I laughed. I cried. It was a fantastic book (I heard it’s a NYTimes Bestseller and I can see why!), but I also think it will be the start of a new, transformative Movement! No one wants to have a stroke as Jill Bolte Taylor did, but her experience can teach us all how to live better lives. Her speech was one of the most incredibly moving, stimulating, wonderful videos I’ve ever seen. Her Oprah Soul Series interviews were fascinating. They should make a movie of her life so everyone sees it. This is the Real Deal and gives me hope for humanity.

    The New York Times Sunday Newspaper on May 25 had a great two page article on Jill Bolte Taylor and her book, “MY STROKE OF INSIGHT”. Her book is a must read and this NY Times article – called “A Superhighway to bliss” is worth checking out too.
