How frustration can make us more creative | Tim Harford, TED Talk

By Laron, editor of transients.info


While the title of this TED talk is focused on how frustration can make us more creative, this talk is so much more. Tim Harford, an English economist and journalist, provides some very good examples directly from life to explain how we can be faced with situations we may not want to deal with because of how they are not suitable to our expectations, but from adjusting to the situation, we can create magic that we may not have realised we could.

“Keith Jarrett had been handled a mess; he embraced that mess and it soared.”

 Since I prefer text over video, something I personally love about the TED talks is that they are short and to the point.

"Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it isn't helping you."
