Serendipity. Such an exciting word. Only days ago, I saw a first email from TED to recommend this talk by Susan Cain, from 2019, called ‘The hidden power of sad songs and rainy days.’ The ex-lawyer, turned writer looked familiar (she should be, I love her earlier talk on introverts!) And then I got an email from Brené Brown who said she’d interviewed her, and then Tim Ferriss. By the third notice, I decided to watch the talk (saving me time, 20 min vs 2h commitment) and boy was that a well spent 20 minutes.
