I took a new idea out on the walls today. The first time I’ve spoken about it in public. Just one-to-one, to a friend. Nothing grand, no pressure. But it was hard. I stumbled, false started, and looked around for help … save me.

Next time will be easier.

It always gets easier.

Skippy Strategy: What have you been working on that could use another pair or ears? Who do you know who’d listen without judging? This isn’t really about feedback, it’s about exploring for confidence. The point of the meeting: pressure makes the weak points obvious, be vulnerable, pay attention when you falter.
