Today’s video comes for the TED Conference. TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a global set of conferences curated by the American private non-profit Sapling Foundation, formed to disseminate “ideas worth spreading”[1]. Author Elizabeth Gilbert presents: “A new way to think about creativity.”

Ms. Gilbert states that “creativity and suffering are somehow inherently linked and that artistry, in the end, will always lead to anguish…are you cool with that idea?” Leave your thoughts below.
