I’d like to share that I have been procrastinating, extensively, about doing a TED Talk. Not sure if it is productive procrastination yet, but my hope is alive.
If I am confessing here, I am embarrassed to say that I have been asked to do a TED Talk – more than once! You would think I would be thrilled and jumping at the chance. Well don’t Google my TED Talk…you won’t find it. You can Google ‘Top 10 TED Talks by Women‘ and see some of my favorites. Chimamanda has one of my favorite quotes at 13:13 minutes in.
The truth is, I completely avoided it the first two times I was asked. I didn’t believe mine would be as good as anyone on that list and I didn’t know what to talk about. I know, those of you who know me know I have plenty to say. And I do. But I wasn’t sure what my one BIG idea is.
So would you want to hear a talk titled: Engagement Comes from Within? (Tweet this!)
Thank you for all the suggestions so far. I really appreciate your input! I made up a short survey to ask for your feedback – if you have a quick minute, click HERE to let me know what you think of this title and help me find the perfect title for my TED Talk.
Next week I’ll tell you the story that inspired the title. Until then!
