I had the opportunity this week to speak at the Midwest Energy Association and in presenting I said to the audience something I learned from a speech coach, Bob Boylan, twenty years ago which is that you should singularly have one point that your audience should walk away with. After the interaction/presentation, a member of the audience came up to me and shared the one thing he learned from Stephen Covey’s speech he went to twenty years ago. Covey said, “You know when your ego is getting in the way when it is crowding out God.” That was such an appealing thought – I thought it was worth spreading.
