Malik’s favourite TED talk is ‘How craving attention makes you less creative’ by Joseph Gordon-Levitt

“This talk resonates with me as the speaker highlights the need for us all to pay attention rather than to crave attention. As someone who is detail oriented, I find the honesty of the presenter and the subject matter highly refreshing. I would recommend this talk to anyone who is looking to be inspired and to help rediscover their creativity through noticing the little things”.
