  • 217. My Own Personal Chaos Questions I asked myself constantly before presenting: Will I finish this on time? Will anyone find this as interesting as I do? Couldn’t slide x have a better image? Will people notice how badly designed this is? Is there too much text? Are there too many slides? Will I sweat too much on stage? Is this even interesting? Is it too short/too long? Does this even make sense? Will it all come together, or fall apart? Will the audience laugh? Will the equipment work? Do I really know what I’m talking about? Will anyone show up without being paid?
