How to Achieve Your Most Ambitious Goals | Stephen Duneier | TEDxTucson

#Exploration #Dreams #Motivation #Happiness #Nonprofits & Activism
How you define Stephen Duneier depends on how you came to know him. Some define him as an expert institutional investor, while others know him as a large scale installation artist, avid outdoorsman, professor, decision strategist, coach, business leader, mindfulness extremist, author, speaker, daredevil or Guinness world record holder. In his talk, Stephen explains that what truly defines him aren't titles, but an approach to decision making that transformed him from someone who struggled with simple tasks to a guy who is continuously achieving even his most ambitious dreams.
For thirty years, he has applied cognitive science to investing, business and life. The result has been the turnaround of numerous institutional businesses, career best returns for managers who have adopted his methods, the development of a $1.25 billion dollar hedge fund and a rapidly shrinking bucket list.
Mr. Duneier teaches graduate courses on Decision Analysis in UCSBโ€™s College of Engineering. His book, AlphaBrain is due for release in early 2017 from Wiley & Sons.
Through Bija Advisors, he helps business leaders improve performance by applying proven, proprietary decision-making methods to their own processes.
His artwork has been featured around the world and is represented by the Sullivan Goss Gallery. As Commissioner of the League of Professional Educators, Duneier is using cognitive science to alter the landscape of American education. He is the former Head of Currency Option Trading at Bank of America and Emerging Markets at AIG International.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Summary: Marginal improvement is the key to success
Speaker says that what stands between us and our most ambitious dream is not magical skill or talent but more with how we approach problems and make decisions to solve them.
Marginal improvements are the key to be better. Stop becoming a spectator and become an active participant of your actions and decisions.
Take big assignments and break them into smaller tasks. Speaker says in college he used to not think of completing 5 chapters but reading 3-4 paras at a time for 5-10 min then do something else for couple minutes and then come back. He was a straight-A student all through college- dean's list.
You have to break big goals into smaller achievable goals.
The talk includes many personal stories about the speaker's life which I recommend you to watch for yourself. I also found the oratory skills of the speaker to be very good. A must watch video.

I cried myself off when watching this halfway, realising I have wasted 35 years of my life without reaching any specific goal I set. Thank you for the video

It's been almost 2 years I have first seen this video, and still can't get over this. Every minute of this video is as precious as a real book. It seems somehow illegal to watch this content for free. One of the best if not the best TEDx Talks ever. Kudos, Stephen Duneier.
