How timely, this came up after today's panel discussion at work...

Despite several dozen speaking engagements for audiences from 20 to nearly 1000, lecturing for hundreds of hours in classrooms, and standing in front of teams for years, I am terrified every time. Always.

It's not a done deal that I'll get on stage until I'm actually there. This morning, I considered going home sick until they announced my name. Every time.
