Last year there were one trillion photos taken by more than 2.5 million cell phone cameras. More than ever before, the moments in our lives, good or bad, are preserved forever. We need to realize that any moment can define who we are to our loved ones, our co-workers, or to the world at large. But thinking through our actions means much more than just not getting caught by a camera. In this fascinating presentation, Dr. Conte leads his audience in a thought experiment designed to promote consciousness of our actions and building character, while distinguishing ourselves and our place in the world.
“In life, when you know you’re right, it doesn’t matter what everybody else is doing…you do what you know is right! You say what you know is right!” We’ve all seen it and experienced it – those times when fading into the crowd is the easier choice – when doing the right thing or standing alone with confidence in our answers and convictions feels daunting. Being authentic even when those around you aren’t is one of life’s greatest challenges, and also one if its greatest rewards. At a time when there is more pressure than ever to follow the crowd, Dr. Conte’s powerful presentation helps us tap into our confidence, our convictions, and overcome the pressures that promote complacency and indecision.
