Ben Zander is incredible. He totally changed the way I think about music. I’ve shown this video to about two-dozen people, and they’ve all loved it. It isn’t so much about classical music as it is about life.
From the TED talk:
Benjamin Zander has two infectious passions: classical music, and helping us all realize our untapped love for it — and by extension, our untapped love for all new possibilities, new experiences, new connections.
A leading interpreter of Mahler and Beethoven, Benjamin Zander is known for his charisma and unyielding energy — and for his brilliant pre-concert talks.
Even if classical music isn’t your thing, you NEED to take a few minutes to watch this video. Grab your roommate too.

One of the more inspiring moments comes at 6:30:
It’s one of the characteristics of a leader that he not doubt for one moment the capacity of the people he’s leading to realize whatever he’s dreaming.
