What’s on your f*ck it list?
After a near death experience, Scott Jones realized life doesn’t need a long list of wishful events but rather more simplicity. Never do things you don’t want to do, ever. Recorded at TEDxVancouver at Rogers Arena on November 14, 2015.
TV Host, pop-culture writer, entertainment critic and digital media thought leader since the early 90’s, Scott Jones is among Canada’s most unique TV personalities. As the co-host of EP Daily, Scott has a long history of talking about everything cool in the world of video games and digital media. Despite his boyish forays into football and poetry, Jones never could escape his ultimate destiny, to be a distinguished voice for Geeks and Gamers around the world.
Scott was busy living a healthy, active, and (mostly) normal life when a one-in-a-million medical nightmare changed his world. A difficult and unusual stroke forced him to re-consider who he was and what his entire life should be about. After a long and arduous road to recovery, he emerged a changed person with a unique perspective and attitude about his identity. He decided to focus not on the things in life that remained to be done, but instead, on all the things he wanted to stop doing. His story offers a candid view on how to get more out of life by doing less.
Currently living and shooting EP Daily right here in Vancouver, BC, his career has afforded him many interesting opportunities, including writing for Esquire Magazine, Playboy, USA Today, Time Out New York, The A.V. Club, and The New York Times, to name just a few.
