Speaking In Public

“What you get by reaching your destination is not nearly as important as what you will become by reaching your destination.”

– Zig Ziglar (Week 1 / Day 2)

For the past few weeks, I’ve been slowly consuming Garr Reynolds, Presentation Zen, in preparation for my eighth speech in the Toastmasters Competent Communication manual. I’m excited to use these techniques for the speech.  

My theme of the talk will be the 1 Second Everyday app with which I captured one-second of everyday for the first year of Kenny’s life.  I want to use this speech for more than a pat on the back for doing a good job on parenting, but I want to relate the amount of seconds wasted during the day.  What if we utilized those seconds?  What if we treated those seconds with as much importance as the rest of your time.  

Like the above quote, the best part of creating this one year video of our son was not the end product, even though that was special.  It was the about making the time to capture all those seconds during the year.
