My Own External Chaos
        While creating this presentation I:


                           quit my job
                           went to multiple interviews
                           created and presented a separate lecture
                           interviewed bathroom contractors
                           picked tile and tub designs
                           worked on 2 creative pitches
                           dealt with a family illness
                           flew 7hrs in a plane with no power outlets
                           lost my notebooks in transit
                           no internet at the hotel for first day

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?

  • 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?
