  1. My problem is… I couldn’t answer the 2nd question. So how do we love from there???
    I mean, I know what I like to do, tried it with passion but realized I sucked at it. Now what.

  2. i am adam, i have fun, i do it for myself, coz i need to cheer up, and it changes my by feeling a little teeny tiny bit better for the moment.

  3. How to Know Your life purpose in 5 minutes
    Video length : 10 minutes
    Still would’ve watched it anyways.

  4. Am 25 years old and l have no clue my purpose in life,l just do cooking, eating, watching YouTube videos and sleeping but l love writing scripts .

  5. This is just silly and the title of this TED talk is deceiving. I’m sorry for the negative comment, but he’s basically asking a bunch of people who have their lives pretty much sorted out what their lives is about. Not everyone has clear answers to those questions (as was made clear from the lack of enthusiasm from the audience) and many who do simply don’t relate to them and are still in the search of a greater purpose. There’s no method here in searching one’s life purpose. This talk was a waste of time (as expected from the premisse). Again, sorry for the negative comment, but I couldn’t help felling deceived.

  6. just wasted 10 minutes and 11secnonds out of my life by watching that video. never seen more rubbish than this chap and his idea about others.
