Are you comfortable in front of people, or does the idea of public speaking make you want to hide in the bathroom? Why?
9:00 PM: I should go to bed soon. I have the conference to speak at. I have my PowerPoint and a rough outline of what I’m going to speak about. Just like when I used to teach, I never fully prepare. I’m best when I wing it a little.
10:00 PM: Maybe I should’ve made more notes? What was I thinking?
10:30 PM: Nah…I’ll rock it.
11:00 PM in bed, asleep 10 min later
1:00 AM: Wide a wake. @#%^&*% Why don’t I prepare more? I need sleep, but I can’t close my eyes.
1:15 AM asleep
8:00 AM: Two hours until I’m in from of the crowd, Why did I agree to do this? I’m a moron.
9:00 AM: I’ll be fine. I always am.
9:45 AM: I think I’m gonna be sick.
10:00 AM on stage
10:01 AM: I’m good!
