A few days ago Shonda Rhimes, producer of just about every show on ABC, participated in the recent round of TED talks in Vancouver BC. TED stand for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the talks cover just about every conceivable topic, my personal favorite is about how being an introvert is perfectly OK even when everyone is telling you isn’t.
Shonda’s talk was about her year of saying Yes to everything; as the TED website described it:
Shonda Rhimes, the titan behind Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder, is responsible for some 70 hours of television per season, and she loves to work. “When I am hard at work, when I am deep in it, there is no other feeling,” she says. She has a name for this feeling: The hum. The hum is a drug, the hum is music, the hum is God’s whisper in her ear. But what happens when it stops? Is she anything besides the hum? In this moving talk, join Rhimes on a journey through her “year of yes” and find out how she got her hum back.
Unfortunately the TED site would not let me share the video here, but here is the link to the talk on the TED website. Enjoy!
