  4. 4. You worked on your session for days, weeks ... maybe even months. You've rehearsed and triple-checked every demo, memorized ZoomIt keyboard shortcuts, and timed your presentation. Your programs are open and ready, all personal information has been cleared from your start screen, and all notifications are turned off.
