Great post, Garr. Love your book and this blog! You're so right. I spend so much time working on my slides that it's easy to forget to stay in the moment. The energy you get from an audience is so important - and critical for maintining the connection and delivering a memorable message.

Hi Garr,

Great post as usual. What is the font used in the slide? Or does anyone else want to take a guess?

this post reminds me of the Nancy Duarte talk you linked to. Her story of meeting the guy on the bus was interesting. The in-the-momentness of his iPhone presentation struck me.

Hi Garr,

Thanks for this post. Every time I give a presentation, I find myself in awe of the moment. Every time I connect with an audience, I'm reminded of how privileged I am to be able to share my thoughts and ideas with people from all walks of life.

Your post has reminded me that those moments of awe shouldn't just be saved for when I give speeches. I should be in awe every time I interact with someone, because I'll never have that moment again.

Keep up the great work.

"Honor the moment as if it were a once-in-a-lifetime gathering."

Wow.

I've actually heard this once before through one of my many career mentors. He told me the most important lesson he ever learned was to "be here, wherever you are." He wanted me to always remember the importance of being invested in the "now" and caring about the people you were with rather than outside concerns that could wait until later.

Thank you for reminding me!

Beautiful pictures. What type of equipment do you carry on a daily basis and on travels to document like this? What's useful to carry and what is convenient? Any opinions, without sounding like a commercial?
