10 motivational Ted talks to kick your ass while loosing motivation during home office

We know working from home can be a minefield when it comes to motivation. With no office to go to and colleagues to talk to, people around the world are finding their focus waning and productivity levels going down.

Luckily, we compiled a list of 10 motivational startup videos, which can help keep your energy up and even, trigger some new ideas. From the emotions that drive our actions and Richard Branson’s near-death experience to the brain-changing benefits of exercise, we give you 10 examples of pure inspiration to use both in everyday and professional life.

  1. Tony Robbins – Why we do what we do

One of the first recorded TED talks was about the invisible forces that shape our every thought, behaviour and action, given by Tony Robbins, one of the most influential self improvement coaches. He dives deep into the 6 human needs – certainty, significance, variety, love/connection, growth and contribution, and suggests that by understanding these needs, and which ones you are trying to meet in any given moment, can help you create new patterns that lead to lasting fulfilment. With a good reason, this video is the eighth most viewed TED talk of all time.

2. Richard Branson – Life at 30,000 Feet

What can be more inspiring than listening to someone who turned a record shop into an Empire? Richard Branson sure knows a thing or two about life, passion, and entrepreneurship. From great successes to near-death experiences, Branson embraced his moments of success and struggle, and with his indefatigable spirit, he has turned his failures into stepping stones for success. From music to media, finance, outer space and everything in-between, Richard Branson is perseverance personified. A great way to get tips from one of the finest entrepreneurs of the decade.

3. Dan Pink – The puzzle of motivation

In one of the most watched TED Talks of all time, career analyst Daniel Pink explains what he calls ‘the puzzle of motivation’. Drawing on 50 years of behavioral science on human motivation, Pink explores what motivates people and how company leaders can apply this research to their own organizations. According to him, if we get past the simplistic ‘carrots vs sticks’ ideology, and allow people to be more motivated by autonomy, mastery and purpose, we can make our businesses stronger and maybe change the world.

4. Marily Oppezzo – Want to be more creative? Go for a walk

Creative slowdown? Writer’s block? Lack of inspiration? There might be a way out. Have you heard of a walk? According to a Stanford study, going for a walk is one of the best ways to recharge your creative battery and behavioral and learning scientist Marily Oppezzo explains this positive impact of walking in the video. She even goes further to deliver five tips for making your walks creatively productive, including being purposeful by picking a topic to brainstorm about, coming up with as many ideas as possible, and recording them as you go.

5. Graham Hill – Life, edited 

Can having less stuff, in less room, lead to more happiness? Graham Hill surely thinks so. Being the founder of LifeEdited, Graham is dedicated to helping people design their lives to include more money, health and happiness with less stuff, space and energy. By providing three suggestions on how to edit our lives, Grahan hopes that one will stick with us: make room for the good stuff. Life is not only about things but experiences and experiences are your best investments. 

6. Stefan Sagmeister – The power of time off

What if every few years you could take a yearlong sabbatical, explore the world and yourself? Well, Stefan Sagmeister can and does this every 7 years. He closes his New York studio and travels around to refresh his creative spirit. In his TED talk, he reminds us how important it is to take time off. He also believes that taking a sabbatical can help you get in touch with yourself to not only figure out what you want to do, but even if you know what you want to do, to do it better—and be happier. 

7. Sam Kern – The surprising power of remote work

If you are still not convinced that remote work is the future, take a look at this video. Sam Kern shares his digital nomadic movement and describes how remote work can become the catalyst for happiness and creativity. Since graduating college in 2018, he’s been living in various parts of the world, working remotely from his laptop, and interviewing people living life on their own terms. The result: exposure to “radically different” ways of living not only gives you more choice and power to create the life you want to live, but also leads to a more empathetic and connected world. 

8. Wendy Suzuki – The brain-changing benefits of exercise

What’s the most transformative thing that you can do for your brain today? Exercise, according to neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki. In this TED talk, she explains how keeping the body healthy and fit can have a lasting impact in the moment and long-term as well, against incurable neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease. You even get a 60 second workout blast at the end of the video! Start working out today and keep your mind fresh for years to come.

9. Ron Finley: A guerrilla gardener in South Central LA 

Ron Finley is an artist, designer & gardener, based in Los Angeles, who uses this TED video to talk about the importance of “guerrilla gardening”—gardening on land that is not legally yours. Few years back, he took a gardening class and decided to grow the vegetables he got tired of driving 45 minutes outside of his neighbourhood to find. Today, he has a crew and they take control of abandoned lots and spaces on the curb to make beautiful gardens and impact the community in a positive way. 

10. Reggie Watts: Beats that defy boxes

Another way to kick your motivation: try something crazy once in a while. Just take a look at Reggie Watts. The internationally renowned vocal artist/beatboxer/musician/comedian is known for his unpredictably brilliant performances using his voice, looping pedals and his giant brain. This TED video is a prime example of his brilliance. Genre-bending vocals, whimsical beat-boxing, and precise musical and comedic timing make this video quite a memorable TED Talk.

Running a 10 person startup from home?

Is anyone running a 5-10 person startup from home? We're based out of Seattle and the city rules seem to focus mostly on home business that require in-house visits from customers and clients (i.e. beauty/salons, law offices, etc.). The main concerns seem to be about the noise or extra traffic that will be created, or the outside signage.

I work at a 5-10 person startup. We have an office at a coworking space right now but 1) it's expensive, and 2) no one's been in the office since March. We're wondering if we can give up the office and when things go back to "normal", work out of a house. It's a large house, so even at 10 people there'd be plenty of space. It's a software based startup, so there would be no outside noise or commotion, and no in-house visits by customers.

Is anyone currently using their house as an office for a team of 5 or more people? Would appreciate any advice and tips!

Glucose monitoring startup GlucoActive from Poland wins pitch competition at Collision from Home

While competing with many promising startups from the US and Canada, the Polish startup GlucoActive won the pitch competition yesterday at this year’s Collision Conference, dubbed “Collision from Home” as it was entirely ran online. Founded in 2016, GlucoActive develops non-invasive laser devices for home, casual and fitness usage that measure glucose level.

Robert Stacherski, the founder and CEO of GlucoActive stated: “10 percent of the global population suffers from diabetes, while up to 20 percent of the population are undiagnosed, leading to 3.7 million deaths annually. In contrast to traditional glucose methods, which cause pain, we use completely non-invasive laser light, which penetrates the skin and reacts only and directly with the glucose molecules to determine the blood’s glucose level.”

The system is already in clinical trials and the startup, still in seed phase, already closed license deals that should get them on the road to profit in 2022.

The Polish startup conquered the jury’s preference in several rounds with the 300 participants. Some of the jury’s remarks stated the size of the potential market, the licensing achieved with multinational companies, the clear financial projections and the ability to achieve this stage of development with just a seed investment, a very rare combination, particular in medtech.

Not just since the recent pandemic we’ve seen medtech on the rise, but it is a bit surprising to see yet another glucose level measurement startup winning an international pitch competition after Nutrix already won at last year’s Web Summit. Better and extended life-span are certainly under investors’ radar and the recent pandemic may have just reinforced the market attention for innovative solutions. In case you’re interested in medtech, you may also want to read our recent piece on promising medtech startups in Europe.
