I have a checkered relationship with public speaking.
I think it’s performance anxiety (and perfectionism) related. But I am becoming less desirous of being as close to perfect as possible and relaxing into being myself with all my flaws (they’re plenty).
But enough of the lead-up and the disclaimers. I LOVED speaking with Carl, who asks great questions and with whom I quickly found comfort in speaking about my own second act and how prominently embracing uncertainty has become a crucial element in my life.
While this interview focuses on my big Italy change, it relates to so much more.
Taking a leap into one’s passions requires full-throated commitment and not a stance of keeping one foot in the world of familiarity and perceived safety. This is what comes through when I listen to this podcast interview.
Give the podcast a listen and let me know your thoughts!
And don’t just listen to my interview (which is #74). There are many AMAZING and inspirational stories.
If you’re considering a second act, and if you’re ready to embrace uncertainty, this podcast channel is for you. Carl Landau is a delightful and articulate host. I love that his second act has included this (and a passion for Pickleball—he and his wife co-authored Pickeball for Dummies!).
