There are few things quite as awesome as coming off the platform. Tonight was a good night. Preparing, practicing, and delivering a good speech is an amazing process. Sometimes it goes well and sometimes its just ok. There are no guarantees. Sometimes an audience gets your humor and sometimes they don’t. Stories that hot home with one group fall on deaf ears at another locations. As a science it is inexact at best.
I put the work in though, with no guarantees that it will work out. Every once in a while though I hit a home run. So I’ll just enjoy the trip around the bases. And I’ll try to remember this the next time it’s not too good.
