Tuesday Video – Closer Than You Think.

Here is a great TEDxABQ talk by Don McIver about how a big change might not be such a reach–

Don McIver’s TED Talk.

Meanwhile, it’s finals week!  I am underwater with studying. Personal tax and financial accounting are left to go.  Corporate tax was tonight–and it knocked me out.  Plus, the exam didn’t finish until 9:45pm so…let’s just say I’m having Wendy’s for dinner.

Two more days!  Wish me luck.


Tuesday Video: On Creativity

I had lunch today with one of my poet friends, which reminded me that in addition to being an accounting student extraordinaire*, I used to be am also a poet! My friend was in town for a governmental accounting workshop–in addition to writing poetry, she also does the books for a scientific operation up in Santa Fe. We talked and laughed about how hard it is to get into the creative mindset on the heels of hours and hours of accounting-type work.

On that note, this Tuesday video segment will be dedicated to one of my favorite Ted Talks on creativity: Elizabeth Gilbert on Your Elusive Creative Genius.

Maybe once I’m done with this Three Exam Week, I’ll see if I can’t return to a little bit of creative work.
