Re-imagining the Future of Work | Sally Thornton | TEDxLosGatosHighSchool

How do you widen the aperture in your lens of work to see a bigger future for yourself? The future of work reveals that we are living longer and need a new model for how to integrate learning, working, and time to re-energize with family and friends. Learn the science behind why we may be stuck in the old model of work and how to move to an integrated life of work and play.
