I googled the TED talk above after getting home and catching the speaker, Brené Brown, on Katie Couric’s new show talking about vulnerability. Brown’s a research professor at the University of Houston so I’m sure she knows her stuff. It’s compelling, but I wonder how much of our discomfort with being vulnerable is just our discomfort with any discomfort.
But if you’re in a “I know what to do but don’t seem to be able to do it” place (aren’t we all sometimes?), her talks, books, or quotes may provide some useful inspiration.
