Derek Sivers’ Ted talk was about not being afraid to stand up and be a leader or follower in the world. He goes on to say how in the act of starting a movement leaders are over glorified meaning that they get all the credit. In reality,though, the follower has a really important role in the movement for they are the ones who transform the person into the leader. This connects to the book in many ways. The main connection relating the ted talk to the book is the idea that the follower defines the leader. Arnold chose to follow Mr. P’s advice to leave the reservation therefore making an impact on his life and others around him. Our Ted talk is worth watching because it is easy to relate to and Derek Sivers shows this in a fun way by featuring a dancing guy. It is an inspiration for the world to not be afraid to start a movement. - Timea R. and Shannon M.
