How did I do? What did I learn?

It has been a while since I did a presentation. I was rusty. A few things I observed:

  1. I did not become aware during the presentation. This has been a goal of mine – to be more aware throughout my day. I failed at this.
  2. As I was unaware most of the time, I rushed through it.
  3. I looked to the left a lot more than to the right.
  4. There were a few times where I was stuck and could not find the words. Rusty.
  5. I did not slow down during the opening and at the end.
  6. I was self-conscious during the end and didn’t pay attention to that, and address it.

All in all, I was not mindful. Next time I will add a small sign on my slides to remind myself to pay attention to what’s happening- to become the 3rd person of my presentation.

I also need to work on how I could use discomfort / unease / awkwardness as triggers to awareness.

I also wish I wrote down the questions and the names. I thought about doing so but I let the idea slip away in my mind.
