Certitude

Yesterday was a big day for me – it was the first presentation to a 10-person executive team in my new iteration as Curve of the World talking about People and Culture… Something dreadful happens to me when I get anxious – I berate myself and talk myself down and make the experience unbearable… So yesterday instead of working myself into an anxious and worthless knot, I snuck off for an hour of yoga at midday… from virtue cards at the reception desk I picked Certitude – truth be known I had no idea what it meant… to be without doubt in one’s capability… and so I took this into the rest of the day and out to the meeting… with the hope that I would rest in the comfort of finding a confidence in what I have to offer whatever the outcome of the meeting… So perched on the most beautiful of heels I delivered the presentation without too much sweating and gnashing of teeth and teetered out of there with delight and grace that this was a first for Curve of the World and I had survived…
