I’m a pretty good speaker when I know what I’m talking about.

I’m a pretty bad speaker when I don’t know what I’m talking about.

I’m a pretty bad speaker when it’s scripted, fake, and forced.

Moral of the story:

Speak about things we know. Speak about things we care about. Speak about things we’re passionate about. Speak about things that come natural to us. Speak about things we genuinely want to know more about.

When we speak about these things, we can think less, research less, plan less, and prepare less. When we speak about these things, it naturally flows.

Talk about things we know.
