    wow. This was very short and the most powerful of the Tedx videos I've watched. This hit me hard. If I can spend an extra hour daily in my field of interest I will be an expert in that field after 5 years? Wow soo true and really inspiring. And it makes a lot of sense though

    Amazing. Thank you Sir! This helped me get through 🙂 this is not my first time watching this… every time I try to find this video I search "Think like an oak…TedX" lol. This video is my long time favourite vid that helps me to believe and have hope in myself. This was educational and inspiring, still is. Thank you. I hope to find and help myself to get back up and go the distance and hope to have that "energy" to do what I need to do to make myself, my family and childhood self proud.

    Created for a reason? No. Not true. Able to create meaning in our lives? Yes, most definitely.
    This claim that if you study one hour a day for five years (and similar ones, such as 10,000 hours to mastery), you can master a field of study has little basis in science. It depends enormously on the person and the subject at hand. If the speaker is suggesting that by studying at something one hour per day you can make advances in a given field, then of course you can. But please, let's discard these "1 hour a day" or "10,000 hour" claims, which are silly. I found this talk vacuous and pretty much a waste of time.
