Break the Habit - Public Speaking Skills

I pulled up to a rest area, got some gas, and in the middle of watching the news I realized I was watching TV while I was pumping gas. I had never seen a TV at the gas pump before and I was shocked that I just found myself enthralled in the watching without realizing the fact there was something I had not seen before. In the middle I said to myself, “wow, I’m watching TV at a gas station.”

We are so used to watching TV it has become an automatic habit. When we speak in public we all have automatic habits we are not aware. Start paying attention to what you do during your presentation and if you discover a habit that could be distracting to your audience, stop doing it.
