This is why I never do scripts. In fact, I hate 'em. Why? Because when I talk to friends and family I don't use a script, so why would I use a script when I give a seminar or speech? Do you see what I'm saying here? The minute a speaker stops worrying about a script and just allows the art of conversation to take over, as well as life's lessons to abound, something special occurs. This is hard to explain fully but I've seen it happen in my life over and over again.
But I digress. I'm actually writing this post because my awesome and hilarious friend Keith over at Easy Public Speaking was kind enough to give me the floor on his blog and discuss why the process of preparing a speech or presentation is so over-blown by most people and the fact that it does not need be so difficult.
