About two years ago, I was asked to speak to Peg Morse’s Vision Group at the Newbury Court retirement home. It turned out to be the worst talk I ever gave.
Don’t get me wrong – I’ve always enjoyed speaking with Peg. And the other people who came were also nice, attentive, and engaged. For my part, I showed up prepared, with an outline, notes, and even a diagram of the eye. So why did this talk go so badly?
