Strong Enough to Be Wrong | Joshua Harris | TEDxHarrisburg
In today’s world we spend so much energy being right and proving others wrong. Twenty years ago I wrote a best-selling book about dating that I’m now realizing misguided and even hurt some people. I’m hoping that my experience of listening to my critics and reevaluating my conclusions, will inspire others to see that progress and growth always involves the humbling process of admitting mistakes. Joshua Harris is a wordsmith, communicator and content strategist who loves to help clarify and amplify messages that matter.
He’s best known for writing the runaway best-seller I Kissed Dating Goodbye when he was 21.
Twenty years later he’s attending graduate school in Vancouver, Canada, and filming a documentary with fellow students about his journey of facing up to ways his book harmed people who followed its ideas. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
