Do You Agree With This Quote From Terry Pratchett?

Quote From Wayne Burgraff VS. Mark Twain Quote

At 2:35 today, I sent the manuscript for my new book, Captivate Audiences to Create Loyal Fans to the press.

Here is a quote that I deleted as I went over the final draft. I had several quotes and this one was the easiest to delete. Important quote but it’s not quite to my point.

Wayne Burgraff, “It takes one hour of preparation for each minute of presentation time.”

Since my book is about preparing to tell engaging stories in presenters’ talks instead of winging it, I had another quote that I liked better and kept it in the manuscript.

“It usually takes me more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech.” Mark Twain.

The impromptu makes me laugh and emphasizes my point.

As Donna Kozic says, “See you in the bookstore.”

How Do You Deal With Clutter?

clutter is delayed decisions

clutter better than idle neatnessToday I thought I’d clear one of the piles of books behind my desk. That one pile led to three more and now I have one corner cleared.

I had procrastinated. At least I knew what was in those piles. I rationalized that if organized, I might not be able to find anything because it would be in a new place.

clutter empty desk empty mindThe open area I created today, reduced claustrophobia, but there’s no danger of having an empty desk. I’ve cleared it before and in less than a couple days, it’s filled again. So, Albert Einstein, I will not have an empty space, but I don’t want a cluttered mind. I’m determined to finish this project.

How are you doing with clutter?
