Recently I applied to get on a committee. A frightening experience indeed. I’m motivated to get amongst this world of Governance.
Anyhow, I think I let my confidence get in my way somewhat.
I had to do a presentation and some collaboration workshops. My presentation I began working on weeks in advance. I had a good story to tell. But was it enough? No I thought . I added more to the story but it was other things…distractions.
Then as there was so many applicants . Our presentations were cut from 5 to 3 minutes. I culled my presentation …well that’s a strong word. I kept on reading and deciding that deserves to stay…oh yeah that also. I forgot the rule
Introduction to me an the idea
Middle – flesh out the idea
End supporting the idea
All else I should have tossed. Then during the actual event I tried to cull it on the fly. I felt I hadn’t even begun.
Only get one chance at it really.
But I had all the time and more to get ready for that one chance.
Note to self. Don’t let this happen again.
