I had dreamed of speaking at this conference because it changed the trajectory of my life in 2004 when I attended. So I kept submitting proposals and getting rejected. In 2009 I submitted seven proposals and they selected ONE, "Managing Your Inner Critic and Committee." I was finally in!

So many people signed up for the session they had to put me in the biggest room, so my first ever speaker gig was to 1000 people. OMG, talk about inner critics! It turned out to be one of my best moments so far in life, I thoroughly enjoyed the session and the vibe from the participants. I was walking on air afterwards.

I went into the book seller's and library room after to sit for awhile. The Librarian came over to me and said my session was one of the best she'd ever attended and asked a fateful question, "When is your book coming out?" My automatic response was "I'm not a writer," but she was so certain the content of my session was vital for others to hear and learn from. She believed I had to write this so other's could be helped with their inner critics.

Four years later, a ton of inner critic management, learning about myself and writing, agonizing, fear, dread, crucible moments - along with incredible support and the book came out. I dedicated it to that Librarian.

This is my first Author Question response so please help me by asking any questions!

“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.”
Audre Lorde

Pema Chödrön
“The basic ground of compassionate action is the importance of working with rather than struggling against, and what I mean by that is working with your own unwanted, unacceptable stuff, so that when the unacceptable and unwanted appears out there, you relate to it based on having worked with loving-kindness for yourself. Then there is no condescension.”
Pema Chödrön

Tara Brach
“In a popular teaching story, a man being chased by a tiger leaps off a cliff in his attempt to get away. Fortunately, a tree growing on the side of the cliff breaks his fall. Dangling from it by one arm—tiger pacing above, jutting rocks hundreds of feet below—he yells out in desperation, “Help! Somebody help me!!” A voice responds, “Yes?” The man screams, “God, God, is that you?” Again, “Yes.” Terrified, the man says, “God, I’ll do anything, just please, please, help me.” God responds, “Okay then, just let go.” The man pauses for a moment, then calls out, “Is anyone else there?”

The words you can’t find, you borrow.

We read to know we’re not alone. We read because we are alone. We read and we are not alone. We are not alone.

My life is in these books,
he wants to tell her. Read these and know my heart.

We are not quite novels.

The analogy he is looking for is almost there.

We are not quite short stories. At this point, his life is seeming closest to that.

In the end, we are collected works.

He has read enough to know there are no collections where each story is perfect. Some hits. Some misses. If you’re lucky, a standout. And in the end, people only really remember the standouts anyway, and they don’t remember those for very long.

No, not very long.
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Ben Horowitz
“1. Trust. Without trust, communication breaks. More specifically: In any human interaction, the required amount of communication is inversely proportional to the level of trust. Consider the following: If I trust you completely, then I require no explanation or communication of your actions whatsoever, because I know that whatever you are doing is in my best interests. On the other hand, if I don’t trust you at all, then no amount of talking, explaining, or reasoning will have any effect on me, because I do not trust that you are telling me the truth. In a company context, this is a critical point. As a company grows, communication becomes its biggest challenge. If the employees fundamentally trust the CEO, then communication will be vastly more efficient than if they don’t. Telling things as they are is a critical part of building this trust. A CEO’s ability to build this trust over time is often the difference between companies that execute well and companies that are chaotic.”
