For all the times I’ve stood up and encouraged people to challenge themselves and stretch their comfort levels, I must announce a person win.
My SWOT analysis consistently reveals a weakness related to my video presence. Somewhat surprising is that I’d say public speaking is a strength, but that camera changes everything. I’m told it’s quite an entertaining sight to see.
Long story short, I’ve responded to ASQ’s call for participants to share stories for a few years now. And, each year I’ve found that my expectations of looking like someone physically suffering have materialized. Each year, I’ve requested they don’t post the video even before I saw the final copy.
Not this year.
I decided to give the video thing another try this year at WCQI because, why not? I had a message I wanted to share and a personal obstacle to overcome.
It surprises me that I forgot about the video, but I did… A friend recently texted a link to none other than myself looking mostly normal on the ASQ site. I’m so excited to be able to share this information in a format I challenged myself to improve in. Yay.
