South By Southwest (Sxsw) Music Festival Austin, Texas
For you to become the amazing speaker you know you can be, you have to start performing, not presenting. You have to start connecting to the words, stories and topics you are speaking about before your audience will connect to them. This doesn"t mean you have to ride into your presentation on a unicycle juggling bowling balls (although, if you can... why not?). It does mean that you have to change your mindset from presenter to performer.
Support Mont Lyons, hailing from Austin, TX, has been playing heavily locally ever since festival wristbands, but I"m not complaining. The groovy, emotional and upbeat sound of this band makes me dance every time. Lead singer Bryan Oliver plays keyboard and sings at his mightiest, while band mates Trevor Smith and Brandon Crews on guitar and bass groove to their music, keeping the crowd hanging on for that next song.

Of course, there are goals that have to do with physical measurements (weight, body fat percentage, size), and other goals that might have to do with your performance, like running a certain time or distance. Another type of goal might be to get yourself geared up for a future event or challenge, like a 10k run, or a full or 1/2 marathon, or a triathlon, or a "Tough Mudder" event wristbands, or a long distance cycling event, or a 3-day walk, and so on. You could even schedule a vacation where you"ll be active, like climbing, or surfing, or skiing, or white water rafting, or hiking. You get the point.
Opting for a pity party on the couch with a month"s supply of potato chips because you missed working out this week? Or because you gained a few pounds? Really? Get up! Do something! Even if it"s 10 squats (or deep knee bends, if "squats" sounds like too much work), do something. March in place. Move your spine. Put a little Elvis in that pelvis. Smile. You"re getting better now. Carry on.
