Ken Robinson

"Very many people go through their whole lives having no real sense of what their talents may be, or if they have any to speak of."

English Author/Speaker
1950 -

Are you aware of all your talents and gifts?  I was fifty years old before I realized my voice was a gift.  In recent years I learned that I have a talent for geographic memory.  I can visit some place and come back five to ten years later and still recognize landmarks and find my way around.  We discovered that my wife has a photographic memory.  When she was in school she could repeat the textbook paragraph by paragraph on her essay tests.  Teachers accused her of cheating.  When my wife was a child she taught herself to change her dreams.  If she had a nightmare, she would change the dream.  Today, scientists call it lucid dreaming.  We all have talents and gifts that we don't realize that we have.  What are your hidden talents?  Celebrate your gifts.

Here is Ken Robinson with his first TED talk.
