Matthew's Mind

Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.

They walk to the front of the room…

  • “Is my mic on?”
  • Presentation bullet points on the screen behind.
  • “Where’s my clicker?”
  • “Please turn your phones to vibrate and restrooms are just out those doors.”
  • Heads drop, eye contact is lost.
  • “Thanks so much for coming today & spending your time with us.”
  • 30 seconds in, the audience checks their cell phone for the first time.
  • A shallow and disingenuous intro question is asked.
  • No stories shared, the same words as everyone else are spoken.

But you wouldn’t do that. Would you?
