You can prepare and still be nervous

Preparing for a presentation is a good thing, but it doesn’t always get rid of nervousness. I’ve worked with hundreds of people who were nervous even though they had spent a lot of time preparing. The reason: You can prepare for weeks and never focus. Because you’re staying on the surface of your material, you’re not really absorbing your message. Therefore, you’re worried about knowing it and are nervous.

The key: Focus during your prep time. You’ll save valuable time and alleviate your nervousness–because you’re actually clear on your message.
