TedXMac 2017: Steve Marshall, Beauty & Astonishment


Steve Marshall, Beauty and Astonishment

  • why a trick works is more important than how it works
  • astonishment happens every time you experience for the first time
  • “Astonishment is not an emotion that’s created. It’s an existing state that is revealed.” Paul Harris
  • the easiest person to fool is a scientist…children are the most difficult to astonish
  • the feeling of astonishment can be found all around us
  • a little mystery is a good thing
  • rise table rise
  • see something you did’t see before…pay attention and look with new eyes
  • “How much better could your life be if you were astonished every day.”
