Iouri Podlatchikov’s TEDx Talk

Iouri Podlatchikov (or IPod) has given a TEDx talk on why winning isn’t everything, but the want to win is. The basic premise is that if you find happiness or satisfaction from running at a challenge, that is more important than actually scoring the win. Which is a really good point to make.

Unfortunately, be it because English is a second (maybe third after Russian and Swiss?) language and perhaps from being a little light on prep, the talk rambles and the point gets lost quite a bit… As do the jokes. And the punch line is a little awkward.

But hell, no one is asking me to get up and do a TED talk so who am I to bitch? Check it out above.

Hat tip to YoBeat for this one.
