One of my recent off-line distractions was preparing and delivering a talk at the inauguaral Ignite the West event. Ignite is a social networking organisation which is spreading across the globe. It welcomes people to speak for five minutes on any topic they wish. The catch is that they must provide [exactly] 20 powerpoint slides to the organisers in advance. These slides are auto-advanced every 15 seconds, and so the speaker has to keep up with their own slides! So, they must be as concise as possible – no time for waffle
I rose to the challenge a few weeks ago. It was very scary, but I’m delighted I did it, and I’m going to go back for more!!
PS, it wasn’t all about meditation – that was in fact just one slide!
