Script the Critical Moves


“For days I had worried that I’d be unable to get through the final lines of the lecture without choking up. So I had a contingency plan. I placed the last four sentences of the talk on four slides. If in that moment I couldn’t bring myself to say the words, my plan was to click silently through the slides and then simply say, ‘Thank you for coming today.’”
