Life’s Reallyyy Awesummm!!! (Barney Stinson style)

On the 8th Jan, upon browsing the TED talks’ Recent/New talks’ list, I happened to listen to a guy called Neil Pasricha’s quite funny yet very deeply profound & poignant talk (given in his hometown in Toronto, in 2010) on the 3 ‘A’s to have an ‘AWESOME’ life:

Letting your heart lead you, and putting yourselves in experiences that satisfy you…
