21 -year old serial entrepreneur Jeet Banerjee has been a businessman since the age of 9. But he's always wondered when the right time is to pursue your dreams. In this TEDx talk, Banerjee asks us three questions. 1) If you could do anything right now, what would you do? 2) Are you doing it? 3) Why not? He urges us to make the time to follow our passion, whatever they may be.

    @Ashley Taylor think about when you're on your death bed (i know, morbid) and looking back on your life. Imagine how you'll feel if you had become a doctor and how you'll feel if you follow your dreams. just food for thought :). Tell the people in your life that while you may be really good at science, your passion is teaching (and Lord knows, this world needs passionate teachers). Personally, I know I've enjoyed school more when I've had passionate teachers, especially on subjects that I didn't enjoy. Tell them, "I'll be of better service and making the world a better, if I become a teacher. Don't you want the world to be a better place?" Maybe the last sentence isn't necessary, but hopefully I helped a little bit :).

    I like the questions asked to the people below and above 25. Loved the way he derived the bottomline which is if you want to live your dream, do NOW...!

    I want to travel and teach. That's what I really want to do. However, there is so much pressure of people expecting me to become a doctor because I am really good in science, yet that's not my passion. Exploring cultures and meeting diverse people, and teaching is what I want to do. It just so hard, to just do it!
