Day 14 (of 185) nerves? No excuses? Not always perfect
I’ve done many presentations. But nothing like TEDx – and I don’t think I’ve ever had a “rehearsal” go so bad as the day before @tedxwestvancouver – total brain freeze and no way to get on track.
Maybe because I just finished driving to the coast (sure……)
Could be because of some changes I’ve made to my script in last days to make the flow feel better (more realistic…)
Could be that it’s because it I’m using a script (so much better with bullet points) to keep within the 4 minute parameter. (New format….)
Really glad I got to see the venue though. That will help with refocusing. Also glad I had practice the day before.
I also appreciate the support from my family and the +ve mentions on social media. And that I do have a backup plan in case I blank out on stage…..
Now to practice what I preach to my students and staff about risk taking. To trust the process….know we are supported…..and get ready to do the best job we can!
There will be a bonus blog based on ‘the day’…..
