Skipped the Main Point

Last night, I had the opportunity to speak to college students at Vanguard University.  They had a series that they were working through, and I was invited to share some ideas on Identity Formation.  Seeing as I study and write about identity, I was looking forward to it.

I had a great time.  I’m always excited to share my research, but I got so excited with my talk that I misjudged the time.  I was just building up to my main point, and I was told that I had only 10 minutes to go.

I skipped my main point and just went for the practical application.

It ended up working out alright, but I had spent a majority of the talk setting stuff up, and I missed the main point.

Maybe there might be an opportunity to go back and share the rest of it.  If not, I’ll maybe record a video and post it here.  If you were there last night and you have any questions, please ask me here or send me an e mail.  The email info is at the about page.

I don’t suggest you skip your main point when you give a talk, but it happened to work out last night.

  1. It happens, especially when you’re passionate about the subject. When are you speaking in NorCal? Andrew and I are seriously talking about bringing you up here for a parents seminar.
