Presentation


Overview

Success is a mirage and design never gets easier. You set a goal for yourself, perhaps an award, a big check, or a new client, but once you achieve that mile-stone everything feels the same. You’re still you. You never feel like you’ve “made it.” This is a good thing.

Your career is a journey, not an end point. That desire for achievement is what keeps you hungry, keeps you pushing forward. It’s a blessing, not a curse. Can you imagine what would happen if you lost it?

Objective

To put that constant feeling of inadequacy in perspective. Most speakers get up on stage and act like gods among men, I’ve found that letting down your guard and being human makes for a better audience connection.

Target Audience

Every person who makes anything who feels like they’ve never arrived.

Four Things Audience Members Will Learn

  1. Everyone feels this way, even people who you perceive as big shots
  2. Your career is a journey
  3. You aren’t inadequate, you’re growing
  4. Be careful of ever feeling like you’ve arrived, then your story is over
