"You can't talk your way out of what you behaved your way into."-
Stephen Covey, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
We all know of bad behaviors that were intended... where consequences reflected the bad behavior.
But not all behaviors are intended, such as coming on a Zoom call ill-prepared and looking like a rookie. That's an unintended behavior that compromises your intended message...there's a consequence to that. It lessens your brilliant intentions.
The same applies to recording videos, presenting to live audiences, or online interviews. If you want to come across as a pro, then you have to get it right. If it's not worth your time or effort to get it right, then you're a faker.
You see, you can fake out yourself, but you can't fake out others...not when it comes to this.
Success in the 2020's will largely depend on how we adapt to the changing times. If we don't adapt, then we fade away and become irrelevant.
I plan to be relevant for a long time. I teach, coach, and mentor young people, teenagers and college students, to be relevant. We work hard together for each to standout in a world in which most people settle for just being in the crowd.
NYU Professor Scott Galloway refers to that as being "unremarkable".
If you or your child wants to stand out, then here's where you begin. Meet the fabulous Kerry Barrett, long-time NYC News Anchor

Remarkable? Standout? Look like a Pro?
