Glossophobia is the fear of public speaking. Roughly 75% of the world suffers from this social phobia to some extent. The exact cause of glossophobia is hard to pinpoint but both genetic factors and traumatic experiences of one’s past can play a role. There is, however, a silver lining. Deliberate practice can help overcome glossophobia over a period of time.
If there is one skill you should work on in 2022, it should be effective public speaking.

💌 The first 1000 minutes of Susan Cain's day - After spending more than 10 years studying and working in law, Cain had to repivot her career. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise. As it happened one of the senior partners in the law firm she worked at walked into her office and told her that she would not be making partner in the stipulated time. This was all she had worked for so understandably it came as a shock. Tears followed. At her lowest point she stumbled into clarity: she never cared about law. Writing was what she wanted to pursue.
💌 From the archives: How being a rebel pays off - Leveraging Professor Gino’s eight-pronged framework of rebel leadership, organizations can transform the disengaged rebels into engaged contributors. These points are equally relevant for freelancers and solopreneurs.
💌 How Benjamin Franklin Worked - Ben Franklin, one of the founding fathers of USA, had a remarkably productive, creative and impactful life.
