Professionally Speaking

This is the mark of a true professional – of an artist you might say

Pithy quote from famous author
Our obesity epidemic stems from our resistance to change

 

The c-suite executive said, “They were a tough audience”.

“Yeah”, I said, “But it’s my responsibility to overcome that”.

The next day, anticipating more of the same, from different folks in the same organization, I attacked it completely differently.

Same core, simple, key, repeatable messages.

But with a redirected energy aimed right at their predictable resistance.

I changed. Big time.

This is the mark of a true professional – of an artist you might say.

Aha, three things just collided to create the artist’s framework:

  1. she changed the conversation
  2. she made us feel uncomfortable
  3. we miss her now that she’s gone

Inspired, these people who do what she did are artists, not fearful, conforming zombies.

We waste our life waiting for this one thing that never comes…

Permission.

To be an artist.

To do the things we love.

And maybe even get paid for them.

The fear of death comes in second on the all-time “greatest fears” list.

What does the thought of public speaking do for you?

Hope we get to share the same room in a cool place and hear a great speaker together some day.

The CEO of the NBA team said, jeff really went out of his way for you this morning.

What team? Which jeff?

Doesn’t matter.

What matters is the executive was acutely aware of what 99.9% of the audience was not.
