New BNET Video: Malcolm Gladwell on "Meaningful Work"

That Malcolm Gladwell really gets around. From discussing some of the findings from his upcoming book, "Outliers," in the New Yorker, and that discussion being discussed on BNET1 and elsewhere, the "Blink" and "Tipping Point" author stars in this new BNET Downtime Video.

Here, he talks about the notion of "meaningful work." Speaking at the Dreamforce conference in San Francisco, Gladwell offers up some examples of how simple hard work later looked like genius. Success, he believes, is the result of putting your heart and mind into something to create successful, meaningful work -- and, just as importantly, being rewarded for it.
