I’ve been neglectful and failed to visit the TED Talks website for a while.  My mistake.  There are always little gems to be found there which intrigue, inspire or uplift.


Here is a case in point.


Candy Chang, an advocate for reclaiming public spaces and an artist, asked a simple question of the people of New Orleans: what do you want before you die?


She got a whole bunch of thought provoking answers.


She also started people much further afield thinking about the main thing that they actually wanted.


If you have a few minutes you might want to look at the talk, answer the question and then figure out what is the first step you are going to take to attain what you want.
