Sorry for posting late. Please watch the video and post questions and comments:D
I think Derek Sivers is same person of last week’s TED Talk, isn’t it?
oh really? isnt it the same topic is it???
1, what’s “social reality”?
2, What does he recommend when you have a big personal goal?
1, what situation do you make the biggest effort to achieve your goal?
2, How “satisfactions” work in your mind?
1, temptation —the desire to have or do something, esp. something wrong, or something that causes this desire
2, gratification —to get what they want immediately
Comprehension questions are good:)
I think you need put meaning of “satisfactions” . I did not this word.
Thank you, Kasumi.
Satisfaction is “the pleasant feeling you get when you receive something you wanted, or when you have done or are doing something you wanted to do” from Cambridge dictionary. I saw you posted the definition though 🙂
Your discussion questions are so interesting. If I put into the situation, I don’t know what I’ll be doing. I look forward to hearing your opinion at the TED TALK.
