I haven’t had much time to blog this weekend. I’m teaching a new writing workshop this week and I’ve spent quite a bit of time preparing.
Typically I overprepare. It makes me comfortable, and it makes the workshops run smoothly. When I coach people on presentation skills, I advise them to prepare as thoroughly as they can. But this time I am ignoring my own advice.
Instead of obsessing over the material and driving myself crazy, I’ve decided to trust myself. Trust that I can think on my feet and handle whatever comes up. Trust that I know my stuff and how to teach it.
Why the devil-may-care attitude? Well, I am running out of time, I’m feeling brave, and Dexter is on tonight.
I may crash and burn, but just think what a fun post that will make.
