RETHINK -The need of the hour : TEDxHyderabad 20187 months ago Sruthi Malla
How to get a new perspective on an old idea?
Nothing complicated, just Rethink!
A child’s curiosity and thirst for new knowledge often gets lost in the transition to adulthood. This is especially true of adults who have been in the same career for a long time. Stability can turn into sameness, and the reliability can become predictable. You may get the occasional curveball thrown your way, like some new calendar application or accounting software, but that’s about it.
Success today requires the agility and drive to rethink, reinvigorate, react and reinvent constantly. We need to rethink the fundamental premises of schooling and decide what it is we want all children to learn and why. We need to rethink our position in the world and as an individual, what we should do to make this world a better place. It’s time to reset, rethink and reposition.
Rethinking gives you permission to use your thoughts to change your mind. Take what is and spin it around to give you a new review and fresh perspective” – Susan C Young
As a tribute to all those rethinkers, this year, the TEDx team chose the theme RETHINK. An Invite from their end is what we are extending to our Hyderabad startup community in their own words:
“Are you a contributor to a creative future or a survivor of history?
Do you have an unmet goal? NOW is the time to RETHINK your vision!
Have you lost an opportunity? NOW is the time to RETHINK your choices!
Be it any field of work, how far are you willing to go and RETHINK?
The need of the Hour? A powerful opportunity yet a challenge? Why Change? What drives you to be the change.#RETHINK”
