It’s a new month…full of potential for us as speakers.
So what’s my challenge to you?
Super simple. But so effective.
TAKE A WALK.
1) Whenever you can, mute your phone and put it away in your pocket or bag before setting out.
2) Take an index card, write down one question that you want to think about in relation to your talk eg ‘What would be a fun, or intriguing opening?’ Say it out loud too.
3) Head out, with your card and a pen, and walk for at least 15 minutes. Take the card out, or say the question to yourself again if you feel other thoughts circling. But otherwise, just enjoy your body moving, and let your brain work its magic.
Simple. But lots of us don’t do it enough.
And yes, if you spotted a furry face in the pic – double bonus is that my dog gets to come too!
Have a great month. Go forth and think and speak.
