“Just email me; I will look at it and make some suggestions.” It sound easy; we do it all the time. But what happens when we KNOW what we going to say, but it comes out mumbled?
That is EXACTLY what happened to a fellow member of Birrdsong I was talking with last week A few months ago, he told me he was writing a speech and asked if I could help with the images. I said sure. Well, that’s not exactly what happened. He told me what he was doing and I fumbled around what I wanted to say. Eventually, I said wanted to say about the images.
I saw him again and I asked how the speech was going. He told me it was almost done and he should soon need my help with the images. Then I froze.
I new what I wanted to say: “Just email me; I will look at it and make some suggestions,” but I just couldn’t say it.
I got in the car and mentally thought about what I WANTED to tell him. After I got home, I sat down and wrote it out. It took about half an hour. But now, when he calls, I pull up the script and will amaze him.
I realized it just takes some time to get all the words out in the order I want.
