Red face is an understatement. How I wish I wasn’t there.
Six years ago, I walked into a room with 42 eye-balls watching me as I entered the door. I was one hour late. It was a time management seminar.
And I was the speaker.
The reason: It was a busy week – I had five consecutive training days. The day before, I came from out of town training – travelled by bus for seven hours. I was home around 3am.
I forced myself not to sleep. But I was tired. I woke up 8am and the seminar was supposed to start around 8am.
Yes, the show went on. The participants said they were satisfied.
But I had to return their payment. That’s what I have to pay for my own time management seminar.
