Me and my assistant Johannes have just arrived at a hotel lobby in outside Munich, Germany to do a lecture for an international company called Nemetschek. I will meet with about 70 of their managers to discuss goals and motivation.
We flew from Sweden this morning, have a couple of hours to wait here in the lobby, then 1 hour lecture before we start the travel back to Sweden. Scheduled landing time in Sweden: just before midnight. I don’t think many people understand how many hours public speakers spend on the road just do an hour’s lecture. And naturally that is sometimes why it is so expensive to hire someone for an hour: travelling time is 12 hours more.
Don’t get me wrong, I am really not complaining, I love my job. I just want to give you a glimpse behind-the-scenes. 🙂 And behind-the-scenes includes a lot of waiting.
