Have Self Discipline | The Blogger and Professional Speaker Share Needs

Blogging Speaker

Blogging Speaker

Getting ready for a talk, or planning out your writing schedule is most always not a collaborative effort.

You will be giving your talk. Nobody else will.

You might have a team of researchers working for you, gathering information, digging out and verifying factoids. But you and you alone will have to put them together.

Speakers Need Self-Discipline

Presidents have speech writers. But the Commander in Chief is the one who has to stand up and deliver.

I have been delivering talks for over a half a century, and very rarely does anybody send me something out of the blue for one of my talks. It happens (thanks, Rick!) but I still need the self discipline to click through, read, think and apply. Nobody will do that for me or for you.

Speakers ask 4 Questions of Themselves

Now that you have everyone in the room:

  1. Do you have the self-discipline to stay on topic, stay away from rants, to deliver on what was promised?
  2. Who tells you to go into the room and practice?
  3. Who tells you to keep looking till you find the right image?
  4. Who tells you to keep digging until you get the facts, the correct facts to support your talk?

Self-discipline will go a long way to making you a better speaker and blogger.

Without it? Let me know how that works for you.

Reach out to us and we will get you on a cruise ship as a speaker.
