Answer: A long freaking time.
Hmmmmm...that's kind of vague. So, let's use more a concrete number: 12 hours.
At least, that's how far it has taken my buddy Arthur Doler to put his next awesome talk together.
So, why 12 hours?
- Is it a magical number?
- Am I in love with number 12?
- Is it the meaning of life?
No, to all of the above.
Arthur committed to record his journey on streaming his talk preparation.
Arthur Doler@arthurdolerEver wanted to watch a speaker develop an entire talk, starting from a blank presentation? Wanted to hear them talk about what they're thinking as they do it? Well, now you can!
I'll be streaming the creation of my new talk, starting tonight at 6PM: twitch.tv/arthurdoler13:11 PM - 12 Mar 2019
And, as of this post, he has 12 hours of recording!
It takes time to put a great talk together. It's not easy and a lot of work.
I hope you realize that even seasoned speakers have to go thru this every time they are putting a new talk together.
If you are currently working on a talk, keep on going!
Arthur's work reminds me to appreciate the time, effort, and energy put into each of their talks.
It's humbling to realize how much goes into a 45-min or 1-hour talk.
They make it look easy...the sign of a master.
Thank you to all the speakers out there.
