002: How I Lost the Joy of Public Speaking

Show Notes

When creating and preparing for speaking engagements, my process is brief, but painful.

I suffer a lot during each “joy of birth,” but always follow the same formula: Open laptop, open PowerPoint, and think about what to say.

It’s fun for me to step on a stage and interact with the audience. I’m good at it, and people enjoy listening to me.

So, why isn’t preparing for talks and speaking as much fun as it used to bei?
