Kevin Kelly is the founding executive editor of Wired magazine and a former editor/publisher of the Whole Earth Review. There are some gems in his lessons learned list.
“When public speaking, pause frequently. Pause before you say something in a new way, pause after you have said something you believe is important, and pause as a relief to let listeners absorb details.”
“You will be judged on how well you treat those who can do nothing for you.”
“When you are stuck, explain your problem to others. Often simply laying out a problem will present a solution. Make “explaining the problem” part of your troubleshooting process.”
