When I first started public speaking, I loved when I had technical difficulties. Focusing on them – problems I was familiar with – calmed me down.
Today started out with quite a few technical difficulties. First my SO's car broke down on the way to work and I had to go get him. (About an hour roundtrip.) Then an hour later daycare called and said my 3 year old was sick so I had to go get him. (About 40 minutes roundtrip.)
So I'm trying to use these technical difficulties to my advantage. I'm squeezing all important work into nap time. I have to be very productive for two hours!
And then I think I might just take the rest of the day off. (Which can be productive in a different way.)
What do you do when you run into too many "technical difficulties"?
