So, the big meeting went amazingly well.
I put in so many hours of prep that one part of me isn't surprised, but most of me is still, actually, pretty surprised.
After my talk, there were many questions, and only one was difficult. I did OK with that one.
The next day, one of the folks called me and said, "You were really impressive. I felt like standing up and cheering after your talk."
I have to say that I owe a debt of gratitude to many, many of you. I asked for a lot of help, and I got it in droves.
I needed that help because even though I am good at the talking part and strong in my passion for transformation and change, there was much I didn't know and much else I needed to provide. And many, many of you helped me, and are still helping me.
Thank you. I will not forget those who helped me. When you have need, I will be there.
This morning I woke up with this thought in my head: "I have eight days to make and upload my TED Talk application."
I've had the link for weeks, and divalion sent me a link to the New York page ages ago. I even posted a link on LJ for you.
Here's the crazy secret: I've been too scared to look at it until today.
This, more than anything, is why I need people who care around me: I need them to push me over that little edge of fear.
I woke up and told Michael, and he immediately reached for his iPad to look for the link.
We looked at it together and it's not that bad at all.
I even have access to a video of a longer talk I can potentially hack and link to in my application. I should have been on that already...
But we're on it today, now.
Next stop, TED 2013.
