Sometimes personal development takes a back seat when other tasks take priority.
At those times I like to find short TED talks that provide motivation, information or inspiration.
Here are a selection of great 3 minute talks when time is short.
Matt Cutts: Try something new for 30 days
Mark Bezos: A life lesson from a volunteer firefighter
Terry Moore: How to tie your shoes
Kamal Meattle: How to grow fresh air
Laura Trice: Remember to say thank you
Richard St. John: 8 secrets of success
