I know, I know. I posted a
bit long time ago that I wanted to start video blogging and that it was one of the scariest things I could do. That was 3 months ago. And since then I’ve had this nagging voice in my head telling me that I’m failing because I’m not doing them as often as I wanted. And I guess somewhere along the way, that nagging voice just became the norm and I was able to effectively tune it out. Until recently when my Pursuit 31 mentor started getting on my case and emailing me almost daily to ask if I had recorded the newest Refocus video. It was the push that I needed and I finally sat down to record it last weekend.
1. I am still not used to hearing my voice on camera. And I still hate it. I started watching this video and turned it off after 15 seconds. Hopefully you don’t do the same.
2. I still talk too fast. I’m working on that one.
3. I made the decision to only allow 1 take for each of these cause I don’t want it to sound “perfect”. Clearly, my strategy is working because I relentlessly stumbled over words and said “Ummm…” way too many times.
4. I hope this challenges you at least a bit, because it has definitely kicked my butt this week.
