Ten years ago I was given a gift. I was on board Flight 1549, which crash-landed into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009. On that day, as my plane was crashing, I saw into the future. I saw the things I regretted in my life, what I was sad to lose, and what I wished I could change. I was given the gift of a miracle – of surviving, and of coming back to live differently.
As a lifelong learner, I believe there is something to learn from every experience and every conversation. On the 3 Things podcast, I am sharing access to private conversations with some remarkable friends – and just as I did at TED many years ago, I will summarize 3 simple things we can all learn from each.
On Season 1, I was lucky to speak with an astronaut, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, a former monk, Hall-of-Fame athletes, and many more.
