Tim Minchen: A human being with passion and no long term goal

Shares beauty

 

I associate like mad. A lot of things I hear and see make other things I heard, have seen and experienced pop up.

Not very decent to start with an other video when you want to show appreciation to a person and his work.

So I … I did. Just for the setting.

Take time and listen, look, read, think… 

But do ask you to take 25 minutes, perhaps more of your life to be inspired by Tim Minchen*.

 

It is always worthwhile to meet great new people. Most often they them selves and many others know that they are there already for a longer time… A little journey on the web brought me him.

I have given a lot of speeches myself and respect any other that take time to share. I might not like all of his opinions and approaches, but who cares.. I value this man a lot..

Start:

A lovely doctorate speech made me curious and I started searching for more about this man from (for me) down-under Australia.

The first video is a bit long. But still look at it and listen.
