“Approach the game with no preset agendas and you’ll probably come away surprised at your overall efforts.”
Today I’m giving a talk at the Mercer County Juvenile Detention Center.
Talk about a tough crowd.
Someone asked me, do you know what you’re going to talk about?
I said, “Nope.”
That’s not entirely true. I have given close to 50 talks in the past year or two and they have all been pretty much the same talk. So I do know what I’m going to talk about, but I’m not going to have a set agenda.
My philosophy is that you should speak from the heart, instead of speaking mindlessly. When you do this, the message is more real and many times you figure out new ways to deliver it.
If you go into a tennis match thinking, “This is the ONLY way to win,” you’re setting yourself up for failure.
There is no “one way” but many options.
