Getting Over Yourself

Watch these techies emote as Curiousity lands on Mars


How to Get to Mars. Very Cool!

This really is cool. And if you watch it all the way through observe how much emotion those techies exhibit as they wait to see if the landing is successful and after it lands. It isn’t that people don’t have it in them, it’s that it shows up when they’re completely in the moment on something they care about–and when they don’t feel like the focus is on them.

 
So, anyone of them (and of you) can bring that level of interest and commitment to your speaking when you stay focused on the meaning of the moment rather than on yourself. It takes practice and you can do it. Practice on small things like thinking people are looking at you when you make some minor mistake in your life–and then work up to the bigger things.
