TED Talks Tuesday: My Year of Saying Yes to Everything

Shonda Rhimes, the titan behind Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder, is responsible for some 70 hours of television per season, and she loves the hum of great work. But what happens when the hum stops?

"When I am hard at work, when I am deep in it, there is no other feeling," she says.

She has a name for this feeling: The hum. The hum is a drug, the hum is music, the hum is God's whisper in her ear. But what happens when it stops? Is she anything besides the hum? In this moving talk, join Rhimes on a journey through her "year of yes" and find out how she got her hum back.
