There was just the right amount of entertainment, laughter and education to keep the entire group interested, engaged and learning. It also helped that the presenter was easy on the eyes (Hey, I'm a single woman, give me a break. Even the married women noticed). Now if they retain any of the information is another story.
Part of his presentation that really stuck out to me was about dealing with trees. He started off with this quote:
It knows it must move faster than the lion or it will not survive.
Every morning a lion wakes up
and it knows it must move faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve.
It doesn't matter if you are the lion or the gazelle,
when the sun comes up, you better be moving. - Maurice Greene
He then showed us this video clip and asked how many of us feel like this every day. I immediately raised my hand and everyone at my table agreed and laughed.
Moral of the story - you never know what 'trees' the other person is dealing with. Always try to remember the other person is dealing with their own trees when you have your daily interactions.
Peace & Blessings...
