Inspiring a life of immersion: Jacqueline Novogratz on TED.com

We each want to live a life of purpose, but where to start? In this luminous, wide-ranging talk, Jacqueline Novogratz introduces us to people she’s met in her work in “patient capital” — people who have immersed themselves in a cause, a community, a passion for justice. These human stories carry powerful moments of inspiration. (Recorded at TEDWomen, December 2010, in Washington, DC. Duration: 17:46)
