TEDxLansing-Jake Pechtel-A Series of Flats and Sharps: The Wisdom of a Cool (Old) Jazz Man

In 2004, Jake met Sam Rivers, a very accomplished and still performing jazz musician, who said "the secret to life was to eat half of your food". At the time, it seemed like weight loss advice. It turned out to be some of the best advice he'd ever received, though it didn't hit until 2008. At that time, Jake made a major life decision: Give up his career so that his wife could keep doing what she loved to do. This meant moving out of their 1400 square foot loft apartment into a 700 square foot house. Half -- as a concept -- had returned to their life and became a new way of thinking. Sometimes the best advice in life comes to you when you aren't ready to listen to it. About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) http://www.tedxlansing.com/ @TEDcLansing http://lcc/edu/tv/ @LCCTVTheLink
