When I’m delivering Great Demo! Workshops, I write down new ideas and thoughts to improve the Workshop – right then and there. Why do I do this? I do it to get better.
Far too often, we think of a great new idea – and then later on we can’t remember what it was…! (Has this ever happened to you?) So I make a brief note, right away, so that the thought is captured and doesn’t get forgotten.
I find that this is key to making positive changes and improving my practice. I set myself a personal objective to capture one or two new ideas, tips, or changes I want to make in each Great Demo! Workshop that I deliver.
- What new thing went really well that I want to repeat?
- What new idea did I encounter or learn that I want to try or develop?
- What bad thing happened that I want to avoid repeating in the future?
You might apply the same principle with your demos: when you stumble upon something that works really well, or slam into something you never wish to repeat, or have an idea you’d like to try in the future – write it down!
[Note: if your demos are simply running the same pathway over and over and over and over, you can ignore this suggestion – getting better will be tough!]
