The global climate crisis will require us to transform the way we act, says His Holiness Pope Francis. Delivering a visionary TED Talk from Vatican City, the spiritual leader proposes three courses of action to address the world’s growing environmental problems and economic inequalities, illustrating how all of us can work together, across faiths and societies, to protect the Earth and promote the dignity of everyone. “The future is built today,” he says. “And it is not built in isolation, but rather in community and in harmony.”

What do you end up doing when you’re busy doing something else? For me, it was observing the things my coworkers did in meetings to “appear smart.” A few years later, those observations turned into a blog post that went viral around the world and became the subject of my first book. I ultimately ended up leaving my job at Google and starting my own brand based on these everyday observations. This talk is all about observations; how to find the humor in them, but also how to observe yourself in order to discover what it is you truly love doing.
