There can't be many times when you go to bed knowing that whatever happens the following day you'll remember it for the rest of your life. But then I guess not every day do you do a Tedx Talk.
I went to said bed feeling good about what was to happen and slept well except for the fact I was in a small guesthouse bed sharing it with my two favourite females the smaller of which was taking up much of the space.
I awoke and the first thing I did was to note how nervous I felt and surprised myself. I didn't feel nervous at all. Maybe the attack would come later I thought.
But it never did. At the side of the stage I spied the famous big red circle and talked to it a little in my head. The audio man hooked my microphone up, I listened to the compère doing the intros and get me slightly wrong. I walked up the steps onto the stage and stood firmly in the red circle.
What happened then was captured for all to see just about forever I guess and therein is the pressure of a Ted Talk.
