If you have no interest in Public Speaking, that’s ok. May I offer this different perspective for still paying attention to this jungle jeff blog post?
As a Professional Speaker, sometimes a “sports story” is appropriate. There are people however, that will immediately turn off and tune out. Why? Well for starters, they’ll say things like:
- “I don’t like sports”.
- “I never played sports”.
- “I don’t watch sports”.
- “I hate sports”.
So let me just say this, when I tell a “sports story”, it’s not about sports, it’s about excellence. When I blog about public speaking, it’s not about public speaking as much as it is about passion, and the pursuit of excellence – in any endeavor.
That’s why you should pay attention. “You can observe a lot by watching”. – Yogi Berra
