About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
Wise man. A lot of stuff to think about. Agree with a lot of his beliefs. In our life we really need to simplify, BUT what he said cannot be followed. Basically he said that we should make the stuff that we need. I don't know for you guys, but I don't want to live in a house built from mud or wear what people leave me.
I think we should appreciate and think about his ideas, simplify as much as possible. But to be honest what he said is not practical.
Oh my gosh I wish I knew about this channel before. I’m Thai but left Thailand 1971. Was adopted. 561/2 never been back to Thailand. I really enjoy washing this bc I feel like he’s my asian brother. Yes my family was very poor in Thailand. I know what he is talking about.
Matthew 7: 13-14 .
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
Do you see what this verse is telling us? can you relate it with Jon Jandai's speech? All the best ;)
This talk reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately," a passage from Walden by Thoreau. In my humble opinion, Jandai is describing the bigger picture of life: we are like pawns regularly looking for sophisticated ways with which to make our lives easier, thereby making our lives harder. Perhaps we should look further inward and think deeply about the common joys we as humans all have: family, friends, laughter, love, and compassion. Such a beautiful talk.
right... it's "easy" as long as you live in a climate which allows growing vegetables and fishing. In a place which is not at war. It's "easy" until you get cancer or some other horrendous disease which requires modern medical intervention. Good luck receiving water and soil treatment.
Yep, very easy to think of life at the most superficial level or in the context of the particular circumstances of this speaker.
Many many miss the point of the whole thing. First, look within yourself , what do you really want, not just follow the herd, follow what is drilled into you that "this is the measure of success" as society sees it. Second, whatever you are doing, if you are a software engineer, or a humble farmer, if you are happy in your work it will ease out a lot of unhappiness. Third, Beyond providing yourself and your family the basic necessities, like food , clothing and shelter and medical care, everything else is superfluous, everything else is GREED, unending desire NOT a requirement for a happy life. What is the only thing (leave out the details but distill the essence !) to take away from this is : look within yourself, accept yourself and live life on your own terms and find CONTENTMENT. Basically the parable of the wharton MBA and the fisherman by Jim below means the same thing....!
This idea has been around for millaniums. It has been taught and applied for generations. But nowadays, most of us are consumed by materialism and capitalism without realizing that we have been trapped by it and hard to get out of. Living a simple life in harmony with nature brings true qualities and happiness to our lives.
Exactly, life is simple but people make it complicated. Earlier you find what you want out of life, it's easier to live. The average and majority people follow social expectations and stereotype about life - earn lots of money, get stressed out, and die unfilling. I love the nature and like to be alone a lot. It gives me joy and peace. When I was earning bread, my mind was focused on how to live economically and generously to both myself and others. I managed to retire earlier than the average people. I now enjoy growing my food and helping the real needy around the world who are chasing after a wind. People need guidance, but they have to wake up to themselves - spiritual awakening and enlightenment. Bad and good experiences are good fertilizers to our soul and spiritual satisfaction. Most of people don't have a purpose or a clue about what it is to be content. They are trapped in their own misconception about life.
Making life easy is hard, especially when u have lived it hard for so long. There is no formula to make it easy, either, hence why self-help books and new religions continue to expand. But perhaps for the human being who is thirsty enough, he will ask sincerely and the well will be revealed to him.
Love this video ! He said to collect and save seeds . SIMPLE to plant vegetables in pots . He said to dig a lake and put fish and you'll have lots to eat year round . He said we can build a house ourselves and that is true . So the kids and I started a foundation of 30x 30 ' of concrete . We completed it in 2 days .... we are on our way ! We felt great . It wasn't so hard after all . It brought family unity ! This man says he builds a hose every year !
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
